Clear and transparent water as we know it is now a thing of the past, and drinking water has become a real privilege in a world overwhelmed by pollution. Water is no longer a right, but a private good, marketed and subject to speculation. Water has become a luxury reserved for an elite, a safe haven just like gold.
The project Value of Water has two facets. The first as an ephemeral artwork, made of ice. The second as a perennial artwork, made of transparent resin, allowing the presentation to the public.
Value of Water is the latest project by Parse/Error, a French artist exploring the relationships between human, nature and technology.
