A sneak peak into The Water Project

The Water Project’s Opening piece is a celebration of water – its beauty, diversity of forms – streams, waves, oceans. The visual movement and music reflect the tempo and energy. The rises and falls of water are echoed in the imagery.

Pulling from global and local sources such as the I-Ching and a 1921 Santa Clara Valley Report on Water Conservation, The Water Project’s Wells piece explores the relationship between human beings and water resources.
