The human right to water is fundamental and indispensable, inalienable, indefeasible and essential for life. Water is a common ultimate good; it is an essential geostrategic issue for the survival of any nation, when viewing water as a good of endless value for Humanity, a resource of a highly economic index, a financial asset backing nations that possess it. The global water crisis will take unprecedented proportions and will increase the growing water scarcity in many developing countries. Water resources will steadily decline because of population growth, pollution and expected climate changes. The artist generates through different reflections a scenario that foreshadows the great risks of waste, water pollution and scarcity in the near future if the main responsible doesn't take care about it.
