Waterlust

FABRIC, MIRRORED DIBOND, SOUND, GRANT PARK

Waterlust highlights the lost natural waterways of Grant Park through site- responsive sculpture and sound. Five major springs once situated in historic Grant Park have since disappeared with the multiple expansions of Zoo Atlanta in the 1960s and through desegregation of Atlanta's public facilities. One source, Salaam Spring, is still in existence and now is home to the park’s pond.

Waterlust explores the larger questions of the importance of preserving local water, the consequences of urban planning within and around natural bodies of water, and the future of water in contemporary life.
