Thirst: Anti-Bottled Water Culture Jam

I marked bottled water with "x" stickers and drinking fountains with "check" stickers. I noticed more people drinking from the fountain with the stickers on it.

As the bottled water industry has grown into a billion dollar industry, the negative environmental impacts of plastic bottle disposal continue to grow, polluting our land and water. The two top international producers: Dasani (Coke) and Aquafina (Pepsi) simply bottle tap water and sell this for 1000 times the price of water from your home faucet. Nestle owns Perrier, Evian (amongst others) and is embattled in land/water rights issues in the United States and elsewhere over their withdrawal of municipal water from underground aquifers that are used by townships for drinking and farming.

This work has appeared in the 2006 Creative Research Lab "Fever" exhibit in Austin, TX and in the March 2007 "Subvertisements" show sponsored by the Center for the Study of Political Graphics at California State University.
