66,000 – A Water Mosaïc with a Cause

To raise awareness among the general public about the global clean water crisis, the artist Belo created an image composed of 66,000 cups of colored rainwater simulating levels of impurities found in water all over the planet. This major work of 3,600 square feet, representing a fetus in the maternal womb, emphasizes the necessity of water, even before birth, for each living person. The goals of 66,000 were many: taking up the artistic and material challenges inherent to this monumental production, and informing the public of the dramatic consequences of a lack of drinkable water.

Fun Facts:

  • 66,000 compostable and biodegradable cups
  • 15,000 litters of colored rainwater
  • 1 kg of vegetable dye
  • More than 100 volunteers
  • 62 hours of work
  • Placed end to end, the 66,000 cups would measure 5.2 km long
