“Water: Illusions of Purity” is a multi-part art installation by Kate Dodd currently on display at the Noyes Museum of Art in Oceanville, NJ that ties our local consumption habits to potential changes in our oceans by way of whimsical juxtapositions. Using various manipulations of plastic water bottles, including a dramatic installation of cut bottles mixed with images of bacteria, the project seeks to raise the question, “Is the bottled water pure?” The installation, which will be on display until August 26, addresses the environmental damage from the energy, water use and plastic waste associated with bottled water.
