SYNOPSIS

Privatization and profit-making treatment of water resources is becoming an increasingly profitable business. Drinking water, which is vital for humans, should in no way be a commercial commodity that fills the shelves of supermarkets in hundreds of bottles of different brands. What would happen if all the water was packed and prevented from uninterrupted circulation in the nature? I recognized the fountain as an illustration of the hydrosphere in the urban area. That is the scene of my intervention. The idea was to pack the entire water capacity of one fountain and keep the same amount of water, but in a static instead in a dynamic state. With this, I wanted to emphasize that with excessive packaging comes a threat of fresh water depletion, as in my case, it happened with the stopping of the fountain. In the intervention I used hundreds of discarded bottles of more than twenty different brands of drinking water. The result of the intervention was an inactive fountain filled with bottles full of authentic water from the fountain. The public intervention was carried out in 2017 in Novo mesto.
