What You Put In is a large sculptural water feature that investigates water use in relation to the largest system of fresh water in the United States, the Great Lakes. The artist reminds us not to abuse fresh water by bringing these large bodies of water down to a human scale. The piece resembles a series of large sinks. At each major polluting city, a faucet pumps water into the lakes. By placing this artwork in a public, outdoor setting, the artist encourages neighbors and passers-by to become the stewards of these surrogate lakes and the Great Lakes.
