During the 2017 Detroit, MI boil-alert advisory created by faulty infrastructure I began collecting water samples of contaminated water from my faucet and “developed” them (as you might in a traditional photography darkroom) with pastel paint pigments. Each sample was based on the memory of other water sources with unadvisable levels of potability. This series, called “Don’t’ Drink the Water (Colors)” was a mediation on our fragile relationships to memory and nature and the responsibility of humans to take care of these resources.
