Understanding Our Relationship With Water / MFA Thesis 2015



With California facing a severe drought, the way we consume and waste our water is becoming an increasingly important issue that must be addressed both individually and collectively. Yet, information regarding such environmental concerns tends to be presented in forms that are abstract, overwhelming, and easily dismissed as ‘someone else’s problem.’ The goal for this project is to work towards methods of creating a hopeful mindset that foster action and lead to change. It consists of activities and objects presented in the form of a challenge that inform and highlight our consumption of water.  Participants should come out of the experience equipped with confidence, knowledge, and novel ideas around how they can positively influence their community and environment.
