Elena and I developed The Wave Interactive Public Art Project in 2011 to emphasize the importance of water in our lives and to illustrate through the creation of visually stunning installations how we are all connected by our mutual need for this vital resource.
In addition to cutting pieces of The Wave, participants at Wave events are often asked to complete prompts that elicit their personal memories connected to and associations with water. On December 12, 2014, hundreds of individuals of all ages and abilities contributed to The Wave and filled out our water prompts at the Mandell Jewish Community Center (MJCC) in West Hartford, CT. Images of The Wave installation at the MJCC were included in our last blog post on December 18, 2014. Here are some poignant, poetic and practical thoughts on water.
