Treat Every Drop like Gold

When visualizing my project I wanted to keep it simple, with a focus on presenting a clear and meaningful concept.  Rather than using my artwork to comment on the current state of water conservation, I made it to motivate people, and hopefully further the cause of water conservation.  With gold representing water, the audience might connect the two, and begin to see how precious and limited fresh water is becoming.  My hope is that the visual metaphor of water being gold will leave a lasting impression with the viewer.
