agua coca-cola, mixed media (2022)

Agua Coca-Cola is a mixed media project made from polluted river water from the Río Cuautitlán in the State of Mexico bottled in a Ciel plastic bottle. Ciel is Coca-Cola’s Mexican bottled water brand and has been sold throughout the country since 1996.

Coca-Cola has a long standing history of plundering Mexico’s clean water reserves for production of its products while the country suffers from water pollution in its natural waterways from discharge of domestic, industrial, agricultural and mining residues by multinational corporations and industry. Millions of Mexicans face water scarcity in various regions of the country.
