This installation was based of the historic 1913 Dayton flood and was inspired by research conducted through the Rivers Institute. The unusual image of the horse hanging from power lines caught the group’s attention early on in the project and served as an inspiration to ponder “what happens under the flood waters.” Looking up at the floating furniture, the viewer is challenged to imagine the scale of the flooding as an implied flood line is created overhead.
