Summary:
Water is the chemical matrix required for life, the molecular chain that connects all organisms on this planet. Today the earth's water--transportation conduit, industrial feedstock, agricultural necessity--is coming under new pressures. Examining every aspect of H₂O, from the mythic to the infrastructural, a diverse group of artists and writers consider the current state of water.
