Waters of the Future is an installation about water incorporating water-based block prints with a sound environment, "Water Music with Ichiyanagi Mix," a suite of thirty musical miniatures by Michael Kowalski.

“What is the color of the water of the future?”

The installation is based on responses to the question by over 100 people living in the United States.
Answers to the question are rendered visible through hand-carved, hand-printed woodcuts with water-based pigments on Japanese paper (washi) using the traditional (Ukiyo-e) Japanese printing technique or mokuhanga.

September 13 - The artist will be on-site to engage with visitors and hand-print visitor responses to the question while demonstrating the Japanese printing technique, mokuhanga. Each participant in the project will receive a "Waters of the Future” button designed by Florence. The "Waters of the Future" ("As Águas do Futuro") project began at the Sacatar Foundation in Bahia, Brazil (2018).

You are invited to participate in the project!
