WATER WORKS!

Think of the myriad jobs that are overlooked when you turn on  the tap, no matter where you live, in the city or a rural area: from digging wells, to drawing, fetching, purifying, and  distributing water, to studying its ecosystems, analysing its  composition, to its use in washing, the production of our food,  the management of sewage and waste, the caring for equitable  access to water, the ensuring of environmental health and  sustainability, paying homage to and highlighting water’s  qualities or conditions…

Climate change, financial crises, war, and global  environmental damage, have all put pressures on water forcing  it to “work” as commodity, capital and resource for growing  and shifting human populations.While non-human species and  natural processes such as coral reefs, wetlands and beavers “work”in the maintenance and transformation of water, there are also the “works”created by the passing actions of floods,  tides and storms. How can art, science, design, and activism reinstate the social,  cultural and environmental value of water? How can we give  recognition to the indispensable and invaluable ways that  water works?
