Watercourse is a large-scale multi-screen sculptural projection which depicts a section of a river endlessly looping back into itself. As debris flows down the river, it continually loops around and around, locked in a constant state of motion. Watercourse re-contextualizes a free flowing, summertime river scene into a frozen winter site.

Development of this project was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
