Water is life, water is alive, water is vitality – and man ought to handle it with respect.
We our proud of our achievements and do not want to live without the comforts of the modern world. It is therefore encouraging that there are now initiatives that also consider sustainability and ecology. We have come to realise that we cannot go on as we did in the past! Water is an indispensable part and source of our lives that we must learn to see and handle in new ways.
As an artist I could not be happier to see that a company like HOBART is now going in this direction and looking at the future with this in mind. Using this approach, new technologies will blossom and machines will be developed that no longer waste vital resources.
I want to say thank you to HOBART for their inventions and for their vision of "Washing without water".
