Whater? What water do we drink?
The consumption of bottled water worldwide has increased from 288 to 391 billion liters per year, between 2012 and 2017 .
The environmental impact of bottled water in plastic containers is 450 times greater than tap water and much more expensive, but is it really as pure as we think?
Whater? is an initiative of citizen science, which analyzes and seeks to build citizens´s confidence in the quality and consumption of tap water and fights against the use of plastic bottles.
Whater?´s artistic component will be presented in the last phase, when artists will interpret the data obtained in order to create works of art. In this way we raise awareness about the negative effect of the use of plastic bottles to the wider public and in a more visual way.
