Title of work
“DOWN THE DRAIN”
THE HUMAN BODY CONTAINS APPROXIMATELY 5 T0 6 LITERS OF BLOOD
THE EQUIVALENT OF LEAVING THE TAP RUNNING FOR 2 MINUTES
Description the work
Only 0.007% of all the water on our planet is usable freshwater. Of all the water that enters each household about 95% of it ends up down the drain. A billion people in water poor regions around the globe survive on the amount used to flush a toilet or leave a tap running for two minutes, which is approximately the same volume of blood contained within the human body. This is echoed in the poster which shows blood used as a metaphor for water, exploring the fragile nature of life and awareness of how precious water is as a resource.
