Pure Mix - John Roloff & Diller + Scofidio


Pure Mix is a 81 sq. meter water mosaic, embedded within Kemi’s frozen sea. This field of frozen water is composed of 81 inscribed ice blocks, each of them constructed out of 170 liters of branded water from around the globe. This geo-political and cultural matrix of waters is cyclically transformed: natural water “purified” by commerce, organized by ethos and sublimated by nature.
