Le cours de l’eau, la cour et l’eau #3 Filtro-folie

The filter is one key element of the water machine. As soon as the first day, the filtration team start « scientific » protocols and experiments. Sand, gravel, bottle, water. Clean water, dirty water, dirty filter. Day by day, they try other solutions, more complex. « We need an activated carbon filter! », and they started building an oven. At the same time, other members of the team explore the territory looking for the best possible structure to host the filtration system. Water is heavy, it needs strong support. In the dumping ground close by, they find giant pieces of blue industrial shelves. They now know: they’ll make a tower, water tanks will ground the tower, water will go down while people will climb up. They’ll all join on the slide. Through a system of communicating chamber, water runs first from the well through the mineral filter to a first water tank. It is then pumped up to the carbon filter and the second tank. Last but not least, through the UV filter, water exempt from bacterias and micro-organisms flows finally on the slide to fill up the swimming pool of clear water – and us, of joy.
