Liquid Automata Naithan Bosse

“In the post-industrial age, water and oil are highly valued commodities. There is an aisle in the grocery store dedicated to types of bottled water (spring, distilled, mineral, etc.) just as there are octane ratings at the gas station (87, 89, 91, etc.). As water privatization is increasingly common in draughtridden regions, growing oil demands call for more ambitious means of transportation (e.g., the proposed Enbridge Pipelines Project). There are certainly other points of comparison; yet, in what ways are the two intertwined? More specifically, what role does water play in the processing, transportation, and consumption of oil? Naithan Bosse and I wanted to know more about the relationship between these two (in)valuable resources. Using sound as our methodology, we inquired into local infrastructure.” - Program Notes by Tyler Kinnear
