There are two things every human civilization needs- potable water and a way to dispose of our waste, and every successful community places these two things far away from each other.
Unfortunately these two things come together more often than you think, and polluted drinking water can cause sickness, death and force a community to move and start over again.
To raise awareness about water pollution and how it affects people three students from the National Taiwan University of the Arts created "Polluted Water Popsicles"- strangely beautiful popsicles made from raw sewage.
Here's how the "Polluted Water Popsicles" were made:
Hung I-chen, Guo Yi-hui, and Cheng Yu-ti, three students at the National Taiwan University of Arts, collected sewage water from all over Taiwan and and turned them into popsicles for a project titled “Polluted Water Popsicles.” The project is intended to spread awareness about water pollution and its deep effect on our world’s population. The 100 pieces, which also included designed wrappers, was nominated for the Young Pin Design Award.
Hung and her teammates visited 100 locations across Taiwan to collect waste. They then placed the samples—complete with dirt, bugs, and trash—into a freezer, turning them into popsicles. In order to preserve them, they encased the popsicles in a polyester resin.
