Less Water, More Holy: Tools for Sustainable Ablution
Joe Bou Abboud
About the Selected Project: 'Less Water, More Holy: Tools for Sustainable Ablution
This attempt was dedicated entirely to bind people together as a sustainable community. Brass prototypes served as a firm foundation for the project, providing a clear, solid base for the entire project, allowing the designer to build the gesture and observe the amount of water required. The transformation of the end product was an intriguing part of this project because it was not the outcome I had envisioned. I expected an artistic approach, but the designer was able to develop an end product that has the potential to be revolutionary within the religion, and it is almost ready to be released to the community.
