The ancient Egyptians and Greeks saw water as the source of life, the "origin of everything". Today, one could argue, that role is reserved for money. Just as water makes crops grow, money fuels the economy.

The animation Waterworks of Money explores the influence of money flows on our society. Like fish that don't know they are wet, we are dwelling in a monetary ecosystem. Take 22 minutes out of your day to watch the video and better understand the financial flows around us.

Created by artist Carlijn Kingma in collaboration with investigative journalist Thomas Bollen and researcher Martijn Jeroen van der Linden.
