Travis Bost – DesCours 2011 – HYDROFIELD

This installation, presented for the 2011 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

This installation is an effort to make visual, and to comment on, the interconnected field of hydrology and humanity that is the Mississippi Valley.  It presents otherwise hidden dynamic systems through real hydrological data, collected in the field by the US Army Corps of Engineers, in an altered temporal and spatial condition that makes palpable the movement of water between the cities across the United States as well as the influence of human development in the system.
