The Water Cycle by Ruth Levene


A series of presentations in the style of a weather forecast by academics whose research focuses on urban water management. Using a large poster of a water cycle and a series of stick on cards, illustrated by Jo Salter, they describe issues surrounding water including flooding, governance, the maintenance of pipes, pollutants, farming & regulators.

This work was made during a residency with Pennine Water Group, University of Sheffield. Funded by EPSRC through Pennine Water Group, The University of Sheffield.
