DAE x De Parade 2022

Water is a valuable resource that soon seems to become increasingly scarce. Aquifer invites you to reconsider your choices regarding your consumed products in relation to their water footprint. Not only by displaying physical infographics that show the amount of water waste, but also through the challenge of purifying water yourself, by taking part in the water collecting ritual. 


With De Parade being a sustainable festival, Aquifer aligns itself with their thinking by highlighting the appreciation of water. Having the visitor at the center, you enter into the experience of participating in the water collection ritual. It refers to a ritual because it involves repetitive steps. For example, with one water vessel being five liters, you would have to repeat the ritual fifty times to get the amount of water needed for one cup of coffee.

Aquifer aims to create awareness in a playful way by making visitors feel the time and effort it takes to collect water. It is in relation to the most consumed products within De Parade and products consumed often on a daily basis, with the goal of having a positive impact on the world we live in now and in the future.
