In this project I am looking at the manipulation and control of water in Florida and the development that this enables, whether agricultural or housing, and the impacts of both. In a human world, the natural flow of water crosses our lawns, roads, and agriculture picking up chemicals we use to fertilize our lawns and agriculture and the oil released from cars along the way. These elements are far from natural, pervading the ecosystem, impacting its ability to function properly as the new elements are foreign and unnatural. This project seeks to capture or suggest these human inputs into the ecosystem through capturing the sources of the pollutants and the methods of controlling water.
