This project explores the rivers of the basin, from headwaters down to the delta in Mexico, where the water no longer reaches the ocean. As climate change is ultimately water change, the forces at work on water in the west require reflection. We use every drop of the Colorado River system. What happens when there is less water? This project encourages an appreciation and contemplation of how we perceive and use water and how we need to respond as this precious resource is threatened by changes in climate.
