At The Water Table is an interactive installation allowing viewers to witness and participate in a sitting meditation with the intention of reflecting on water. At each seat, visitors will find paper to write on and place into the bowls the name of a water source providing them with nourishment, solace, joy, renewal or memories — or the name of a place experiencing a water crisis. This is a way to enter the meditation with a personal connection or intention. The act of being still and focusing attention on this one element hopes to provoke deep listening and dialogue on greater awareness and care for the water that sustains us all.
