Living with Water

Life and society depend upon water. We often fail to appreciate how essential this connection is.

Recent human-altered catastrophes such as Hurricane Katrina have placed front-and-center that our technological supremacy over water can have unintended – oftentimes disastrous – effects.

Water may be the most politicized commodity on earth. But ironically water is apolitical. Water ultimately flows where water wants to flow.

Typically, we react to and control water. How can we better adapt to and live with water?

Simple enough, (D+W)’s first objective is to document aspects of living with water.
