WATERS OF THE FUTURE
MOKUHANGA PRINT INSTALLATION
October 12 - November 17, 2019
558 St. Johns Place
Waters of the Future is an installation about water incorporating mixed media and water-based woodcut prints. Participants are invited to answer the question, “What is the color of the water of the future?” The answers are hand-printed with water-based pigments onto washi paper, employing the ancient Japanese technique of mokuhanga.
This is the first continuation of the project begun in Bahia, Brazil (2018). Florence plans to be on-site for several Sundays to engage visitors and hand print responses while demonstrating the mokuhanga technique. Each participant in the project will receive a "Waters of the Future” button designed by the artist.
The artist is grateful for the support of Sacatar Foundation to realize "As Águas do Futuro" in Brazil.
