waterFALL used traditional visual art techniques and media, as well as video, audio, live performance and new media
to create a number of interdisciplinary installations, live performances and visual art works that reference the physical and performative properties
of fresh and salt water in relation to climate change.
These works included Drinking Fallen Water From Sky (lead artist Janice Perry), a simultaneous performance in which 60+ participants worldwide
collected water from the sky and drank it simultaneously; Residue (lead artist Caroline Wright), which consisted of the three collaborators
evaporating salt from the North Sea, and Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, then trading, mixing and returning the mixed salts to the waters;
and A Glass of Water (lead artist Yoko Ishiguro). For A Glass of Water each collaborator created pieces based on the theme of a glass of water.
