Cycles: Between creating and coping with our future

-FINALIST of Waterless World Competition


Civilizations have formed and fallen on the banks of fresh water. But now, with the faint memories of clouds still swirling around us, we have had to enclose the few remaining sources of fresh water into an infrastructure of filtration and distribution to keep the water cycle artificially alive. This mechanism to mitigate our dystopian future is one of two solutions offered by this project. 

The other solution – in an attempt to prevent a waterless world – asks viewers to think about what they see in this project and why? Are we trying to reverse the damage by repurposing our machines, jet engines and automation in order to generate water, one cloud at a time? Or are we still striving for more in a world with less, climbing on top of each other to snatch the last drops of life left on this Earth? Aren’t we doing that already? 

The contrast between the whimsical aesthetic and the poignant truth about our own role and likely trajectory aims to solidify the call for us to break our own cycle of neglect so as to keep the water cycle alive.
