Waterworld

Water is one of the main prerequisites for life on Earth. How has water shaped us as humans? And how has the post-industrial society shaped water? We use water on an everyday basis in numerous ways. Seldom do we reflect on where our everlasting supply of water comes from - or that our supply may be very fragile. WATERMARK tells different stories from around the world about how we drink, maintain, manipulate and play with this incredible resource.
