Installation, Completed in October 2015, Boston, MA

This installation recalls an earlier landscape that once thrived along the Charles River’s edge. Before the last two centuries’ land construction projects, the Charles was a tidal river and its banks vibrant salt marshes full of life, replenished daily through the tide’s natural rhythms. “life SOURCE” temporarily reinserts the natural rhythms of this forgotten landscape into the bustling Boston area by re-creating a salt marsh, an evolving and wildly diverse ecosystem rich in color, texture, form and sound, that supports life.
