John Kleinschmidt + Andy Sternad – DesCours 2010 – Drip

This installation, presented for the 2010 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

Water simultaneously sustains and threatens New Orleans, but its power, meaning, and vital infrastructure are unknown to most residents.  Drip reveals the invisible water of New Orleans through just one sense: the sound of water.  Here in New Orleans, between river and lake, life depends upon a delicate balance between culture, economy, and natural systems.  Drip asks the question, will we hide from our water?  Or will we listen?
