Suspended aluminum water drops and salmon form a 3-dimensional, pointillism mosaic of intersecting light and motion, telling a story of water, both how it is constantly recycled and infinitely precious.
I love how this story is incorporated into the educational tours at LOTT, inspiring visitors to the WET Science Center to use water wisely. What’s more, there are stories within stories as each individual piece was uniquely crafted by a different person, each a unique response to how much water we use and how we can conserve it. These stories weave together limitless layers of depth and beauty.
