performative act, installation
(video excerpt) 1:00 minute
The objects and elements animate each other as the artist takes the role of caretaker for these natural and artificial systems. The performative act as "water bearer" reconsiders the role of the performer however potentially futile the role proved to be. Some natural elements were taken from the Rio Grande River, such as clay, that was formed for various uses. The artificial systems were purposely faulty to allude to the futility of the region’s social and ecological failing systems.
