Antique chemistry hand blown glass bottles, collected rain and grey water and light box.
The Water Harvest is a socially engaged installation-based artwork that celebrates the seemingly small acts of Melbournians collecting rain/grey water in an effort to become more resilient to the impact of reduced rainfall and drought. The artists invited water conscious Victorians to contribute water saved around their workplace or home to be included within the installation; by collecting a sample, the contributors name and their address. The artists calculated the water’s geographic origin and etched this into the bottle along with the water harvester’s name.
