Aesthetics of a relationship: Women and water
In this essay I address how water is memorable as both personal sensory and a social experience. To this end this is a consideration of the relationship between water, aesthetics and memory within the context of critical moments in a Palestinian village. The ethnography of water brings together themes of ruptures, historical consciousness, synaesthesia and memory around fetching and usingwater. I suggest that such reflections on water, aesthetics and memory elaborate on compositions of various theoretical approaches, ranging from critical events and fabrics of social life, to aesthetic undercurrents and water consumption.
