Water Tasting highlights the daily ritual of drinking water and explores alternative methods and materials for purifying water. By testing age-old remedies alongside new ideas, the Water Tasting installation has been developed as an opportunity to reflect on the drinking water crisis. Without the plastic water bottle, we rediscover and reveal the rich drinking water culture we previously lost.
Traditional, natural ways of purifying water can be done with plants, herbs, clay and activated carbon. Francesca Sarti of design studio Arabeschi di Latte shows various glass chalices, each highlighting a different way of purifying water.
The installation was exhibited at ‹Every Last Drop› at the V&A Late, at A/D/O in New York, as part of the Water Futures programme curated by Jane Withers Studio and in the Broken Nature exhibition at the Triennale di Milano, curated by Paola Antonelli.
