Water in the Desert: 2000 Years of Canals

 

 

Water in the Desert: 2000 Years of Canals, Phoenix, AZ, is a collaboration with artist and professor José Bernardi and his masters-level interior architecture students, Arizona State University, fall 2018. The underwater footage from the canals was collected by Meredith Drum, who also collaborated with Bernadi and students on the design of the installation. This is the first iteration of a new project by Drum who is currently collecting sound interviews about the canal with local stakeholders; she is also designing a new installation that will include richer historical content.
