AS ÁGUAS DO FUTURO
Water-based woodcut prints (mokuhanga)
answers to the question: What is the color of the water of the future?
Each scroll: 57" x 16", 2018

Project: "As águas do futuro na boca da baía"
the waters of the future at the mouth of the bay

Sacatar Residency Fellowship
Itaparica, Bahia, Brazil
August - October, 2018

I observed the water surrounding the island of Itaparica through a series of water-based woodcuts using the ancient Japanese technique, mokuhanga. Along with daily drawings and observation, community input played a large part in the project.

I posed the question to people I met: What is the color of the water of the future? Their answers were hand printed onto washi scrolls. Everyone received a "águas do futuro” button designed by the artist.

The artist is grateful for the support of Sacatar Foundation to realize this project in Bahia, Brazil. The project "As Águas do Futuro" envisioned at Sacatar, is now ongoing.
