DESALINIZATION: Salt on the Table (Performance Installation)

Two performance based artists, Shimshon Obadia & Kevin Jesuíno, collaborate to creatively address the complex issues of our world water crisis. 

Two thirds of our planet are water.

Only one percent of that is drinkable.

Humanity is in a water crisis.

Desalinate |dēˈsaləˌnāt|

verb [ with obj. ] (usu. as adj. desalinated)

remove salt from (seawater).

Refers to any of several processes that remove 

salt and other minerals from saline (seawater). 

Salt water is desalinated to produce fresh water 

suitable for human consumption or irrigation.

Unfortunately, this process relies heavily on fossil fuels and 

nuclear energy making it just as, or in some cases more, 

unsustainable to consume sea water as it is to consume our 

planet’s disappearing supply of freshwater.
