The Future of Water

 The Future of WaterThe future of water is the subject of tension. Water is both disposable and sacred, a muse for artists and a necessity for life – a source of healing and of conflict. The Earth has abundant water, but only a very small proportion is available for human use. How should this be managed and sustained, and what would a water-scarce future look like?

SURFACE TENSION brings together work by artists, designers, engineers and scientists to explore the future of water. Through 35 installations, it plays on water’s physical properties, its role in politics and economics, and discusses ways it’s harnessed, cleaned and distributed.
