Artist Statement:


    The wai (Maori for water, flow) project connects Maori cosmology, notions of integrated systems, and western art and science in order to reinvigorate our understanding of flow and water across cultures and disciplines. It includes installation and video components, using technology to focus on the urgent need to engage with sustainable practices, given the environmental crisis. It covers the subjects of energy, ocean acidification, and Maori and Diné (Navajo) approaches to water. Text panels are quad-lingual and include Maori, Spanish, Navajo, and English.
