I do have many concerns about water. I have always loved the desert and the image of the aqueduct running through it. The California Aqueduct System (CAS) is my personal investigation about how California transports its most important commodity from Parker Dam throughout the California desert. When first viewing this section of the aqueduct, I was struck by the ribbon of water, maneuvering its course through the landscape.
The eloquent line represents an engineering feat, and yet it is more than that. I am interested in the sustainability of water. We need it. Each American on average consumers 100 gallons of water a day, whereas in some countries a person consumes as little as 1 gallon a day.
When viewers examine this image and the other images in this series, I want them to consider from where our water comes, how many states rely on the Colorado River, and what will we do without water? Sustainability is an issue I care about personally and I hope that viewers will be moved by the image - to examine their personal relationship with water.
