quelle 01

2.9. – 7.9.

Access to healthy drinking water is a basic right, but also a technical and social challenge. Accordingly, experts in technology, biology, medicine, art and design collaborated on the development of the Quelle 01 (Spring 01) drinking water purification system. It takes local tap water, physically and chemically purifies it, and delivers water as if from a natural spring. The assignment was to achieve consummate drinking water quality, and to use local sources of water worldwide in order to avoid unnecessary transportation, cleaning and recycling of bottles. The outcome is to bring technology, nature and life into harmony in a way that has great future promise. Three of these devices will be exhibited at Ars Electronica.
