Fighting water with water

Mark McGowan, a London resident thought up a novel way to protest against the rampant wastage of water by the citizens of London. He added his own exhibit to a South London art gallery, basically consisting of a running faucet, that has been continuously disharging water for 3 weeks now.

The gushing faucet is an expensive exhibition that could waste about 3.9 million gallons of water. Mark McGowan calls it fighting water with water.

Other protest art exhibits in the gallery include chopping down a tree everyday on the gallery campus to protest deforestation, public defecation by gallery employees on the gallery steps to protest littering and gassing of gallery patrons at the end of every working day to protest the Holocaust.
