Water is Life

2006 / Sidney / Parameter Mapping / Sociological Data

"All life is dependent on water. Water is our most abundant

resource, our greatest need and the lack of it still kills. At a

time where global incomes have never been so high and income

inequalities never so wide this piece of work seeks to highlight

the lack of water (the highest need for life) as a blight on

development. The sonification draws on water as the core

premise of the work. Data relating to access to water and

adequate sanitation is contrasted against global life expectancy.


The work highlights the most disadvantaged in their access to

clean water and sanitation and also tracks nations whose

experience from 1990 to 2002 has deteriorated in terms of

sustainable access to clean water and adequate sanitation.

These beats and rhythms are then juxtaposed against data from

studies on mortality from diarrhea where the death rates have

been greater than 10% of the population under examination."
