2004

Our body mass consists primarily of recycled water. Like bodies of water such as lakes and rivers, human bodies need continuous refills of water to compensate for their evaporation and excretion of water. The water sustaining us now is the same water that has contributed to creating and sustaining life for millions of years, and is the same water that will continue to do so for millions more. A glass or bottle of “drinking” water has an elaborate, almost incomprehensible, history, having potentially passed through people now dead for tens of thousands of years, or through life forms now extinct. A person is, for life, a moving, cycling body of borrowed water. My interest in our water borrowing and how water transcends time and place is the focus of this body of work.
