Stop Water waste



Artist Website


Artist’s Statement

The only way for humans to survive in the desert land of California is to transport water around the state. We push huge amounts in open troughs in 100-degree heat day after day. The flow of usage is startling to me when standing in front of it. I feel compelled to capture and expose the nature of our wastefulness. The California Aqueduct delivers water for industry, farming, and personal use at a rate exceeding supply. Yet we aren’t coming up with plans to shrink our population or sufficiently curtailing our practices, wasting water in so many ways quite ignorant of the effect.  We water our yards with drinking water. We flush our toilets with drinking water. When will we take action to develop better systems that use this precious resource in a manner that preserves and cherishes it?
