Waters of the Future is an installation about water incorporating 103 water-based block prints and a sound environment.
“What is the color of the water of the future?”
The installation is based on responses to the question by 100 people living in the United States.
Answers to the question are rendered visible in hand-carved, hand-printed woodcuts employing water-based pigments (mokuhanga) on Japanese (washi) paper.
The sound environment "Pingos/Ondulação/Corrente" is by the composer Michael Kowalski. ("Droplets/Wavelet/Current") was created especially for the installation.
This is the first U.S. exhibition of the project begun at Sacatar in Bahia, Brazil (2018).
The artist will be on-site several Sundays to engage with visitors and hand-print responses to the question while demonstrating the mokuhanga technique. Each participant in the project receives a "Waters of the Future” button designed by Florence.
Sundays, 1-6pm - Nov. 3, Nov. 10, Dec. 8, Dec. 15
Sunday, Dec. 8 at 1pm - Tori Brand will play the shakuhach in the sound environment and installation.
