In this workshop we wonder what water is -or what is not-, turning the question into a participatory framework for exploring our material imagination, and how do we collectively build material semantics.
Substances are the point of departure for a cultural reflection crossing diverse disciplines and perspectives, and they also allow participants to build phisically the extremely complex idea of `water´.
