About This Item
The artist duo of Sayler and Morris produce work about ecological issues, much of it under the aegis of the Canary Project. In this richly textured artists book, they bring archival and historical research together with contemporary photographs in a revelatory portrait of a river. From the publishers web site: Water Gold Soil: The American River tells the story of a single flow of water in present-day California from origin to end use. Beginning at the rivers headwaters in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the book follows the water through pipes and dams, past Sutters Mill and the birthplace of the Gold Rush, to the corporate agricultural fields until it eventually disappears into the ground, finding veins in the soil. Including a short essay by Elizabeth Kolbert, the book brings together a series of narrative text, photographs, and archival images that represent the history of extraction in California and testify to the social and ecological consequences of watershed colonialism.
