I've posted a few drawings which consider the River at the heart of each map and drawing. The case studies and abstractions are based on instinctive responses to historical data and
Water and its availability and quality will be the main pressures on, and issues for, societies and the environment under climate change.
My current project Rivers + Time + Cities is one which has me reflect on Rivers; sources of both abundance and destruction, life and death, they have had a powerful hold on humankind. The rise of civilizations has always been inextricably linked to the successful management of water when there was either too little or too much of it.
I hope to post regular findings, historical links and videos which relate to my project discoveries, one which is in search of artistic expression, yet linked to an urban and ecological evolution.
about the author
I like to think that the large works on paper on which I assemble different drawing methods represent a kind of inventory or document about the state of the our urban rivers.
