12 April 2018 was announced as ‘Day Zero’, the day that the whole city of Cape Town would have run out of water. When I first heard of this day I decided to book a plane ticket and go. I wanted to see what this apocalyptic situation would look like. What I found was surprising; I found a surreal calm. What confused me the most that some people I talked too did not even believe the drought was there.
There is an ecological crisis going on and we don’t really know what kind of relationship we want to have with the earth. ‘Bron’ aims to make this complex relationship tangible.
“We cannot live without the earth, but the earth will have no problem without us” - Lieke Marsman, translated from Dutch, from Het tegenovergestelde van een mens.
quote: "[...] She shows that changing nature becomes evident in shocks, creating uncertainty about what we have always taken for granted. She shows responses of urban residents to the lack of water, creating the impression of a sense of calmness and peace despite the looming threat, and also our reconnection with nature through our interactions with water." - Lize Swartz, sustainability scientist
