one hundred boats, one hundred waters, 2014
an interactive performance
One hundred glasses of tap water and one hundred paper boats, both especially illustrated for the occasion were handed out to people around the streets of Piraeus. All designs were made in collaboration with the International School of Piraeus' students. The performance lasted one and a half hours, outside Cake Pastry Shop on Piraeus, Athens, on Tuesday 18th March, and was part of the Greek node of the Water Wheel World Symposium 3WDS 2014, an online symposiumto "make","share" and "dare" about water.
