Vases of clean water above the polluted river.

One Keepers of the Waters Project involved draping the steps of a Chengdu tea house with white silk. This "waterfall" of silk was saturated by dripping river water that melted from ice chunks in the building's rafters

Tea cups were placed about the floor of the tea house where they collected polluted water from the river.
