Chikara Kakizawa's Ship Out of Water
Medium: Photographic Print
Phoenix is a ship out of water... both figuratively and literally. We are located amidst an arid desert where people could not otherwise dwell, and yet water is artificially diverted to keep us nourished. And, as supply is always finite, so is this water available to the valley. Phoenix's limited supply comes from a share of the Colorado River, the Salt River Project, and ground water. There is an increasing need for conservation as the state suffers a drought and global warming continues to advance...we must act as a community to take care of this ship.
