Science Gallery Lab Detroit is seeking interactive, participatory works for DEPTH, a free exhibition that will explore the power and complexities of water and its many roles in the physical and social world.
Water is life. Its presence affects all living things. From creation stories about life on Earth, to the looming devastating effects of pollution and climate change, water has the power to spread life and rejuvenation as well as death and destruction.
Who has access to water? Who decides? These issues raise questions about water as a human right. About our responsibilities to water as a resource and our responsibilities to each other.
This exhibition examines water’s polarizing extremes. From discoveries of water on Mars and hydroelectric power, to issues of water quality and access, to the complexities of water systems at the microscopic and macroscopic scales, our futures are directly linked to the future of water. What will that future be?
Submissions should invite visitors to participate, create, and discuss and may range from sculptures or installations to ideas for events and workshops. The open call closes on October 5, 2018. Visit opencall.sciencegallery.com/depth to submit.
