The DIRTY WATER INITIATIVE was a public installation close to the border between Mexico and the USA. It drew attention to the disparity in access to clean water in both countries by decontaminating water with the help of solar stills. >>

“At once art intervention, public architecture, and independently initiated infrastructure, the Dirty Water Initiative brings to light the growing dilemma of water, which is polluted, scarce, bottled, privatized, and wasted.” (SIMPARCH) >>
