70.8 % of the earths surface is water
Water Planet is a large-scale group exhibition of contemporary photography, video, holography and community events that illuminates our relationship with water: watersheds, weather, oceans, climate, politics (irrigation, dams, levees, pollution, corporate control of), animals and plants : the essential nature and magic of water.
..."The living ocean drives planetary chemistry, governs climate and weather, and otherwise provides the cornerstone of the life support system for all creatures on our planet, from deep sea starfish to desert sage brush. That's why the ocean matters. If the sea is sick, we'll feel it. If it dies, we die. Our future and the state of the oceans are one." Sylvia Earle from Sea Change
Water Planet educates, illuminates, presents ideas and initiates positive change.
