This two-year project and its exhibition was made in collaboration with the NMSU Department of Engineering. This project was a process of discovery into the complex history and current significance of the Rio Grande and its territory. Water is a primary issue in New Mexico, as it is worldwide. The Rio Grande river water is essential to the survival of a large part of the state and the region. It is conceived as an introductory visual essay through drawings, writings, artists books and digital imagery. The river and its region encapsulate the ecological challenges of our time. Water is life.
