Okay Mountain Collective - Water, Water Everywhere So Let's All Have a Drink

Okay Mountain Collective

In its video installation Water, Water Everywhere So Let’s All Have a Drink, 2010, Okay Mountain presents a video that satirically pays homage to the saturation of mass media found in our culture. The video is a compilation of a list of daytime television moments that the artists found memorable. Working in small groups, the artists scripted, acted out, created hand-drawn props and graphics, filmed and recorded soundtracks to create an assemblage of videos that humorously critique the media’s barrage of imagery. The title Water, Water Everywhere, So Let’s All Have a Drink is a twist on a traditional song in which sailors bemoan their ironic thirst when stuck at sea and suggests that despite the availability of more information than ever before sometimes it may lack content or quality.
