This program was created by Science Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin and is made possible through the generous support of Culture Ireland, the Cordover Family Foundation and the University of Dublin Fund.

Rethink the most fundamental resource on Earth—water—through the lens of art, design and science at the U.S. premiere of Surface Tension: The Future of Water. This striking interactive exhibit, created by Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, explores water through the exceptional and unexpected. Showcasing more than 40 different artworks, Surface Tension underscores the urgency of the looming water crisis: 1.2 billion people lack access to clean water, and increasing shortages threaten food production, public health and political stability.

Surface Tension ran from Wednesday, May 30 through August 11th 2012 at Eyebeam in NYC.
