On the meanings, values and futures of water. Water is the source of life, without water no survival. Water is energy, water is memory. On the first sight water is an unexciting liquid, flavorless and with crystalline structure, yet with the power to not only transform into different physical states, but to even cause geopolitical threats leading to war and destruction. Water is vulnerable, minor contamination and its overuse lead to tremendously decreasing supplies of drinking water, while the rise of ocean levels causes threats of over-flooding. For water as the most unspectacular, yet most needed and powerful linked essence – we need to act and foster innovative solutions to ensure its availability and purity for the future. And we do so by an experimental, interdisciplinary exploration at the intersections of science, industry, art and society.
