WATERS OF THE FUTURE is an installation about water incorporating water-based block prints with a sound environment, "Water Music with Ichiyanagi Mix," a suite of thirty musical miniatures by Michael Kowalski.

“What is the color of the water of the future?”
The installation is based on responses to the question by 100 people living in the United States.
Answers to the question are rendered visible in hand-carved, hand-printed woodcuts employing water-based pigments (mokuhanga) on Japanese (washi) paper.

The artist will be on-site September 13 to engage with visitors and hand-print responses to the question while demonstrating the mokuhanga technique. Each participant in the project receives a "Waters of the Future” button designed by Florence.

You are invited to participate!
