A visually striking projection, WATERSHED's hypnotic images of flooding and pirarucu, a newly revived Amazonian fish, once at the point of extinction, is uplifting and immersive. Sited on the face of the National Theater of London on the Thames embankment, it encourages people to engage with climate change as they watch entrancing images of colorful fish.

SPIN explores how the urban landscape both facilitates and disrupts our awareness of the moving human body through the medium of the revolving door. Ultimately, it seeks to awaken in the viewer an appreciation of the moving human body as a physical manifestation of our transience.
