The modern way of living with water is an illusion.
While celebrating modern comfort, the system of hidden water pipes has contributed to the feeling and perception of a limitless, dematerialized and invisible resource.
Yet aware of its scarcity, we face everyday the complex paradox of a limited resource in unlimited access. Challenging the way we perceive and interact with water in our homes, this alternative system questions the standards of modern water access with a strong focus on visible amounts and gestures. Bonding with water through gestural measurement based on pumping, as well as through visual estimation could encourage a much clearer understanding and sensory experience of our interactions with water. And therefore a greater responsive use.
