These are just some of the powerful #messages left by residents in Cape Town, Moscow and London.
Photographic artist and social activist SaySay.love launched his “Message in a Bottle” campaign in April this year. He encouraged #Capetonians to share their thoughts on his facebook page about living in a city in the midst of the worst drought it has seen in recent decades, and how it has affected their daily lives.
During his recent #exhibitions in London and Moscow, #cities who according to a recent #BBC report, are among 11 major world cities predicted to face #water shortages by 2050, the artist displayed the messages from Capetonians in bottles as part of an artistic installation. Those who came to view the exhibition were moved by what they read and were inspired to leave their own messages.
The artists’ “Message in a Bottle” #campaign and #photographic display was brought to the attention of a Moscow radio and television station who did an in-depth #interview with the #artist about this work and his support of the environment and water issues globally.
Thank you everybody for being part of my "Message in a Bottle" campaign
