Water Ways, an installation
August 21 to Sept 6
reception: Thursday, August 21 at 7pm
Water Ways is a multimedia installation by the artist collective By Ways, which includes Atlanta family members who now live in three separate North American watersheds*, the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint Rivers, the Hudson River, and the French Broad River. The work investigates the sensory, geographical and storied nature of water. Video, sculpture, found object, assemblage, and earthwork explore water’s elemental qualities, which make both dwelling and movement possible. Condensation, pool, river, waterfall, stream, bay, ice, vapor and liquid inspire method and metaphor.
By Ways members include project leader and artist/designer Judy Henson, artist/projection designer, Anna Henson, and musician/artist, Sarah Henson.
* A watershed is the land area that drains to a point in a river, stream or other body of water. Every living thing within the watershed is in some way connected to the water within it.
