The Sky Well
For most of human history, all life was centered around a community's source of water. For people living away from rivers, wells were a human-made source of water around which the entire community would gather. In this spirit, we had the idea of using our own Skywater machine to serve as a source of water for the Venice community at large. To illustrate the ideals and history of water as a source of community, we worked with an artist to make a mural that would have our water-bottle filling station as its focus. Figures reminiscent of ancient Greek pottery carry vases to the well, or in our case, a Skywater machine.
We worked with a local artist to develop a mural for our Sky Well. Figures reminiscent of ancient Greek pottery carry vases to the well, or in our case, a Skywater machine. Our goal for this mural is to highlight the bottle filling station, and to convey the larger-than-life significance of water in a community.
Working with Community Healing Gardens
Our Skywater machine makes 150 gallons of water a day, much more than enough for the needs of our small office and even the bottle-filling station. The rest of the water is donated to Venice Community Healing Gardens, a non-profit which maintains planters in the neighborhood, growing fresh fruits and vegetables for local school children and the Venice community.
