Liquid Diet

by Martha Poggioli

Water symbolizes the desperation of our fractured global state. As one of our most fundamental human needs, water exists as an increasingly scarce resource that has the potential to divide people and place by defining borders and inciting conflict. Liquid Diet is a low functioning water fountain that considers the looming state of our global water supply. Cast from silicone and taking formal cues from industrial water infrastructure systems, Liquid Diet explores water as a valuable and vulnerable commodity.

Martha Poggioli’s practice reflects upon and generates from industries of production and cultures of consumption, speculating upon process, ethics and value systems. Concerned with the design and choreographic interactions of people, places and things, her work seeks to uncover new typologies through the reconsideration of teleological possibilities, reflecting her interest in sociology, architecture and design.
