What if instead of being divided by arbitrary political lines, we were connected by our most valuable natural resource? In this ecocentric vision of the United States, state boundaries are replaced by watershed divides, imagining a world in which life-sustaining waterways are as culturally significant as politically defined territories.
Originally produced in 2006 as a limited edition of 4 bound artist books, which have subsequently been purchased by the Bank of America Art Collection, the Joseph C. Sloane Art Library Collection of Artists’ Books and Zines, and by private collectors, each map is now available as an individual archival print.
