Marc Böhlen - WaterBar
WaterBar is a public water well designed for the post-sustainability age when clean water is simply not good enough.WaterBar geoengineers mineralized water. It begins with a cleaning stage followed by a remineralization stage through a filter bank with select chemical properties. Water in contact with these filters receives measurable trace elements of magnesium, iron, calcium and other elements. But the filters also share, through origin and history, a connection to place.
An internet-scanning, text-processing control system continuously circulates water through these filters, exposing the water to trace elements of the minerals and rocks. An algorithm mixes this remineralized water in proportion to the intensity of related problems found in pertinent real-time news to create a daily mineralized water mix—the catch of the day. This is offered for public consumption and available only as long as limited supplies last.
