Co-Founder and co-Director of Works on Water
Works on Water is a group of artists and practitioners who work with water as site and material in response to the urgency of a changing climate, increasing urban density, and a burgeoning public awareness of ecological concerns. The work connects to current economic, political, and global issues. Works on Water invites the audience to become civically engaged citizens, rather than only consumers and spectators. This social practice helps raise awareness and lead to solutions around significant environmental issues.
