DEEPER THAN THIRST

AN IMMERSIVE AND INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION THAT EXPLORES THE HUMAN CONNECTION TO WATER THAT RUNS "DEEPER THAN THIRST"

Water holds immense power and value. It is quintessential to life.
Water accounts for the existence and function of all life.

It surrounds us and influences our daily activities and movements.
It holds not only the power of survival; it possesses the ability to shift and alter one’s mental and physical state.

Water is also the crucial link between human society and the natural realm.

However, humans lack recognition, therefore appreciation. Human existence is seen as superior to water, yet without it, life would not exist. Water is our first medicine, it is the very element that nurtures us and what we are nurtured in from conception.

The installation encourages and stimulates self-reflection and mindfulness, which guides participants to explore their relationship with water and the spaces and settings of interaction; provoking them to question their singular and personable relationship with water.

The central message of this exhibition rests in water’s unique preciousness. In first world communities, access to clean water is largely taken for granted. This installation strives to push its audience to become more accountable, conscious and responsible and take action towards conservation.
