Artist and filmmaker Amy Sharrocks is on a mission to discover what water means to people, its many varied uses, and get us to stop and think, for a moment, about its immesurable importance to life on Earth.
She’s done this by collecting water donated by the public, each with a story to tell. Displayed in over 500 beautiful vintage bottles, the collection includes water from a holy river in India, ice from a Sussex field, a melted snowman, condensation from a Falmouth window, Hackney rainwater, a new born baby’s bath water, Norwegian spit, three types of wee, two different breaths and water from a bedside table said to be infused with dreams.
This event is for anyone who’s ever swam in a pool, jumped in a puddle or drank from a tap. It will be open from 10am-6pm Saturday 1 November and 11am-5pm Sunday. Also includes a free ‘Water Bar’, serving only tap water.
Museum of Water is part of Curating Cambridge.
