Of Water And Men

In the light of ever-increasing problems like scarcity and distribution of fresh water, we might need to re-consider our attitude to it. From ignorant, narrow-minded consumption to awareness and care for what you and others share. This series of glasses is based on the Global Water Footprint Standard. Each glass represents one country and shows its water usage (bottom diameter) opposed to the size of its population (top diameter). The volume of each glass is the same. The striking inequalities in the proportion of water footprint/ population results in a set of differently shaped glasses.
