Pondering about My/Our Serious Drinking Problem

Tutkimustuotokset: Kirjoitus lehdessä tai erikoisnumeron toimittaminenArtikkeliTieteellinen


This visual essay deals with drinkable water. Clean drinking water is essential for our lives, but we often take it for granted. We tend to forget how precious it is, as we get it so easily.
I introduce the idea of my artwork which intention was to stop people to ponder about the value of clean Finnish tap water. The work “Thirst extinguisher” was exhibited in InSEA congress in Helsinki in June 2018. I installed the main version of it in a toilet, and another one in an exhibition hall, the Beta-Space.
I also show and reflect on some responses from the participants who encountered my intervention. I write about my work in relation to some recently published newspaper articles where water theme has been in focus. I will reflect on some memories that are connected with the theme. I also include a post scriptum that indicates how personal life experiences can affect the meaning of things/artworks.
