I turned water into banknotes and gold bars as a reflection on the value of water, and the privatization by companies of our most valuable resource. Value of Water is a look at our future and our relationship to money and water.
Clear and transparent water as we know it is now a thing of the past and drinking water has become a real privilege in a world overwhelmed by pollution. Water is no longer a right, but a private good, marketed and subject to speculation. Water has become a luxury reserved for an elite, a safe haven just like gold.
My project Value of Water has two facets. The first as an ephemeral artwork, made of ice. The second as a perennial artwork, made of transparent resin, allowing the presentation to the public.
I’m Parse/Error, I’m a French artist exploring the relationships between human, nature, and technology.
