pulse flow engages with the people and places influenced by the 2014 spectacle that released Colorado River water south of the US-Mexico border, becoming the first bi-national agreement to dedicate water flows for environmental restoration. The work presented in the multi-media exhibition at the Open Space Gallery in Albuquerque, NM is the residue of a performative journey that traced the lines that the Colorado River once etched in route to the sea. pulse flow deconstructs the role of map-making in landscape representation through an installation of works on paper, a handmade canoe, video, and participatory workshops. The work proposes that the modern meander of the Colorado River through the Delta is flooded by a meshwork of communities, ecosystems, politics, and memories.
