A private action. Paris, 2011.
A cross-contamination in commemoration of Algerians drowned in the Seine.

Over successive visits I surreptitiously collected water from the public swimming pool.
I collected a similar amount of river-water from the Seine.
I subsequently deposited the water from the river into the swimming pool (over successive visits), and then poured the swimming pool water into the Seine.
