Performance, 1988-89


‘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.
