Marly Gallardo, Glass of Water
Glass of Water. “Water conservation and efficiency are vital to the protection of our drinking water resources and environment. One small change that can be made to reduce personal demand is turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth. The average person spends 3-5 gallons of water during each session. Instead use short burst of water to rinse and consider using a cup.”
Marly Gallardo, La Paisana
La Paisana. “Homage design to Andean culture. Dating back to the early Inca Empire women continue an ancient custom of carrying their baby on their back, securely wrapped in a blanket called “Aguayo”. The practice allows a mother to continue with her work and maintain close contact with her baby. Children are then exposed to their mothers daily interactions and task. The constant stimuli causes phenomenal audiovisual learning.”
