The central focus of this lesson is to inspire critical thinking about the students’ role as consumers while addressing the question of: Where does water in Valencia comes from/goes? Students analyzed the natural water cycle with and the water consumption and commercialization. As a visual response, students created a serie of photographies inspired by the work of the photographer Sebastiao Salgado shown in “The Salt of Earth” (2015), a documentary by Wim Wenders. During this lesson, students also created an Instagram account, a newsletter and an exhibition title and individual statements.
