Art installation of garden hose chandelier sculpture

Thirst

Installation made from reclaimed materials, beaded droplets, and laser-cut drops. A garden hose chandelier denoting the invisible privilege that most Canadians have in access to clean drinking water, one not shared by many Indigenous people of Turtle Island. This idea stemmed from the realization that even the seemingly ubiquitous act of drinking sterile water from a garden hose as an Indigenous child carries privilege.

Thirst ll

Thirst ll is a short loop animation depicting the transformation of a water droplet into a plastic water bottle and back, indicating the growing presence of microplastics in our water systems. A mimicry of GIF animations often used in social media, it was projected onto the tent structure made from pvc pipe and tarp.
