A Chinese Living Water Garden

It’s a rare fish that knows it swims in water. — Old Adage

Good News of the Day:
Water is art activist Betsy Damon’s passion. She was studying sacred springs in China when she began meeting individuals interested in water from a variety of angles: medicine, hydraulic engineering, spirituality. This unique collaboration led to an invitation to review a major water project in Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan. Because of her critique, the project was actually scrapped. But then Damon was asked to design a new project — which actually got built. Stretching along the Yangtze River and serving Chengdu’s roughly 10 million citizens, it’s the first municipal living water garden in the world — “Polluted river water moves through a natural, and artistic treatment system of ponds, filters and flowforms, making the process of cleaning water visible.”
