Temporary Art

a river’s passing, 1

How often do we really think about the progression of water that makes life possible here in the desert? By combining personal footage of the water systems collected on hikes with archival media of the water journeying from its river origins though the metropolis, artist Perry Allen created an abstract meditation on the relationship between nature, infrastructure and the individual. This endlessly looping, three-channel projection of the Phoenix Valley’s extensive canal systems was shown during the evening hours of Canal Convergence 2016.
