Performance, 1988-89

Description

‘A multi media journey into the world of water’
Addressing human arrogance and superiority in their use and abuse of the environment, the disconnect of consumption and paradox of bottled water; by drawing comparisons between the interdependent circulatory systems of humans, whose bodies are 90%-50% water, and those of the wider environment from the wash basin to the sea.
