This issue is occurring all over the world and millions of people are dying because they don’t have something that we take for granted. Clean water. We don’t think of it as being something we have to work for. We turn the knob on our faucet and there’s clean water. We don’t even have to think about it. We want clean water and then it’s there. Taking showers every day and brushing our teeth with clean water doesn’t seem like a big deal. We never have to worry about getting diseases from our water or walking for hours just to find some. Maybe next time we take a thirty minute shower or keep the water on while we’re brushing our teeth, we can think about all those kids who aren’t able to take showers or brush their teeth. Where we live, we are so lucky to have access to all the resources that we do.
For my piece of artwork, I used pictures from the internet and writing. I used a black background to represent a black hole with the water bottles falling into it to represent that clean water is going away and it is getting harder and harder for some people to find it. We, in America, are so spoiled and we really do not take the time to stop and think about how much water we waste in our everyday lives. The glitter is used to represent how beautiful water really is even though we might not realize it because we take it for granted (and you can never go wrong with a little sparkle). To people who rarely can get clean water, it is really beautiful and a gift when they are able to get it. The images I used were to show the facts about how many people are missing water in their lives, and it is really a necessity that EVERYONE needs.
