The Quinnipiac River Bottled

Yale’s Peabody Museum invited me to create an installation for Earth Day. My solution was a 100+ foot-long model of the Quinnipiac River, made of plastic water bottles. There was a water truck on site filled with Quinnipiac River water and thousands of empty bottles. I filled bottles all day and placed them in the outline of the river. Visitors participated in the construction of the river, using either their own bottles or those provided.

The Yale Daily Newsthe West Hartford Newsthe New Haven Independent, and the New Haven Register all covered the event.
