Personal Quantities

Initial explorations into the quantities of water used during daily activities. This simple study tries to make tangible the amount of water we pull from a faucet. I started by filling the balloons with measured quantities of water, then filled balloons with air to match in size. Surprisingly, the volumetric quantity of water was not what I expected. A liter seems much smaller when contained in a balloon. I repeated the process three times to make sure I was not making a mistake. I wonder if it is possible to develop a means to quantify water in small amounts, to come up with a unit of measure that specific to the feel and flow of water.
