Because of the chlorinated tap water in Paris I covered my daily need of drinking water by plastic bottles; a whole summer long. It's as like in the desert – the one who is thirsty needs to drink. The action shown in the video brings up topics of autonomy, bodily dependencies and the handling of vital resources. All bottles used in the performance I floored personally during my stay and collected them in my storage chamber.
