Bottled V.1 is an installation created out of 1098 discard water bottles. This is the amount of bottled water I drank in a year. The highlight portion of the sculpture emphasizes that only 10% of most discard water bottles are recycled.

Bottled V.1 was conceived and developed during the 2008 Wonder Women Residency. The theme was World War III. Bottled V.1 came out of my experience in the aftermath of 1999’s Hurricane Floyd which left those of us in Greenville, NC without safe tap water for several months.
