Springs, created in conjunction with the Telluride Institute for the San Miguel Watershed Exhibition, explore the natural springs of the San Miguel Watershed as “local beginnings.” Water is a medium of connectivity. Samples of water were collected from each of 25 springs found throughout the San Miguel Watershed. In the future, water from other springs will be added to this collection.
Conversations with residents about the locations of the springs are held throughout the region, creating a transcribed record of the place of water in their lives. The location of each spring is documented online (interactive watershed) with GPS, photographs and video.
