The River Claims Another Victim, 2011
Photographic Installation with Found Objects
This photographic installation was inspired by several ideas that were combined to tell this story. Based on a crime scene photograph of a famous mafia assassination, the group was inspired to consider the water as a physical phenomenon. Following this line of inquiry, they used bladders full of water to imagine what it would be like to be under the weight of water. The group spent several weeks shooting on location to create a suite of images the addresses the onerous relationship that humans have with water. The images are presented in parts boxes from NCR Corporation, equally ironic in that during the 1913 flood, NCR re-tooled their plant to make boats to help rescue survivors.
