    Water: The Evolution of Transient
    Project: The Voyager update project
    I was at the UCLA Art Graduate Show this past weekend and saw a piece that an artist had of all different waters from all different places. It was pretty interesting talking to other people about the meaning, what bottle they were placed in, why, the size of the bottle and how that reinterprets the inclination of the artist putting the pacific ocean water into a bigger bottle than the lake tahoe water. Below are the pictures, thought it might be helpful for the water group.

    The Piece



    The title/The artist



    As a last note: the collection of all these different waters reminded me of the quote from No Country for Old Men about currency and how currency gets around.

    Anton Chigurh: What's the most you ever lost on a coin toss.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Sir?
    Anton Chigurh: The most. You ever lost. On a coin toss.
    Gas Station Proprietor: I don't know. I couldn't say.
    [Chigurh flips a quarter from the change on the counter and covers it with his hand]
    Anton Chigurh: Call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Call it?
    Anton Chigurh: Yes.
    Gas Station Proprietor: For what?
    Anton Chigurh: Just call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Well, we need to know what we're calling it for here.
    Anton Chigurh: You need to call it. I can't call it for you. It wouldn't be fair.
    Gas Station Proprietor: I didn't put nothin' up.
    Anton Chigurh: Yes, you did. You've been putting it up your whole life you just didn't know it. You know what date is on this coin?
    Gas Station Proprietor: No.
    Anton Chigurh: 1958. It's been traveling twenty-two years to get here. And now it's here. And it's either heads or tails. And you have to say. Call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Look, I need to know what I stand to win.
    Anton Chigurh: Everything.
    Gas Station Proprietor: How's that?
    Anton Chigurh: You stand to win everything. Call it.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Alright. Heads then.
    [Chigurh removes his hand, revealing the coin is indeed heads]
    Anton Chigurh: Well done.
    [the gas station proprietor nervously takes the quarter with the small pile of change he's apparently won while Chigurh starts out]
    Anton Chigurh: Don't put it in your pocket, sir. Don't put it in your pocket. It's your lucky quarter.
    Gas Station Proprietor: Where do you want me to put it?
    Anton Chigurh: Anywhere not in your pocket. Where it'll get mixed in with the others and become just a coin. Which it is.
    [Chigurh leaves and the gas station proprietor stares at him as he walks out]
