outdoor installation draws attention to the one element that we are
most dependent on and that is getting rarer by the way: drinking water.
Floating Flux is about drinking water as well as
about "thinking water". It illustrates the cycle of water:
from natural water, to drinking water, to waste water and back to
drinking water. We assembled hundreds of empty plastic bottles that
were used to contain mineral water into huge rafts that we left
floating in the river Spree. The rafts resembled sheets of ice and
obstructed the way for those who rowed the river, meanwhile drawing
attention to how beautiful natural water could be when it wouldn't
be meddled with. Because once the obstacles were overcome, the rowers
could appreciate the beauty and vulnerability of nature even more.
