Accumulation, a suspended installation of slip cast ceramics, is a reflection on the negative impact that humans have had on our environment. This exhibition and slate of programming integrates the history of water use and misuse with the ramifications of the Colorado-Big Thompson Project, and an artistic interpretation inspired by these themes.

“This cloud hangs heavily, like the floating islands of plastic waste that loom over the animals living beneath them. Viewed from below the surface, the weight of our responsibility toward our environment becomes a heavy burden, an anxiety that becomes as inescapable as the microscopic particles that are beginning to saturate the water they contaminate.”
