In a blue room, a flowing stream of worn white T-shirts, empties into a trough of water (24’x2’x1’), containing four monitors.
Three shows a moving map of the Mississippi River, one showing the life cycles of a mosquito.
At the opposite end of the trough, a motorized hand goes off every few minutes to scratch the surface of the water, distorting the images on the screen. From the hand, four water spigots, in line drips to create steam onto four hot plates. Above the steamy atmosphere, hang empty white poly- propylene sand bags to fill the overhead space.
