One Drop Installation from Ringling 1010 on Vimeo.
As part of AQUA WEEK's awareness campaign, Ringling has done its first artistic manifestation on campus. With the support of the Student Government of Ringling College of Art and Design (RCAD) and New College of Florida, their students have collaborated with us in the collection of water bottles consumed on campus for an entire month. We collected about 1,900 plastic bottles, including other bottled products (soft drinks, juices, iced tea, etc.). The idea was to show the impact such a simple product makes in when produced and consumed in a careless and oblivious way. On the night of October 9, 10:10 pm, Ringling students gathered around the main courtyard, with a dozen oversized trash bags filled with bottles and looked around them to see where they could set them up to cause the first impression of this project.
