About the Program
Two interrelated programs— Birdsong Diamond Wetlands at the Del Rey Lagoon in Ballona Wetlands and Water Canning at Westside Neighborhood Park— will focus on the interdependence of water and local ecologies. Waterbodies.org will serve as a hub to connect research, public art, and social awareness around water, including other projects featured in CURRENT:LA. The website also serves to promote public activities and events on birds as indicators of watershed health and creative relationships to water during drought that will take life through simple accessible augmented reality (available throughout the duration of the biennial), live hybrid (digital + physical) presentations, and a movable participatory social practice artwork. QR code tags distributed across the two locations will connect these locations to content featured on waterbodies.org.
