Bury the Water

A site-specific sculpture piece which discusses the issue of the drying Salton Sea. I collected 10 gallons of drinking water from the water bottles of people around Irvine. A metal box was built and sealed in all sides. A hole was dug on the shore of the Salton Sea, and the box was sealed closed with its lid and buried after it was filled with the collected water. Throughout the time, the box would corrode and the collected water will leak into its surrounding soils.
