450 Years: Water f(or) all

350(w) x 500(h) x 180(d)cm

Multimedia installation addressing the issue of disposable waste and its impact on the environment, especially water as a resource. The duration, 450 years, referred to in the title is the amount of time it takes for a single plastic bottle to biodegrade completely. While some bottles can take even up to 1000 years, bottles made with Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE) will never biodegrade. Hence, the work, as an artificial waterfall system with water circulating through the bottles, questions the dire consequences of casual consumption which has become ubiquitous in today’s culture.
