The story of California is shaped by its troubled relationship to water. Over the last century, the
definition of conservation and by extension, reclamation, has changed drastically.

We invite critical and/or creative submissions for a forthcoming book and exhibition, presenting
the politics, poetics, history, reclamation strategies, and communities living near to water in
California.

This project will create a new way of navigating California's landscape. Erasing the traditional
map, tied together by counties and towns, the state can be drawn by waterways, watersheds,
reclamations, deprivations...connecting seemingly disparate bodies. This is an experiment in
geography, that encourages the mythological while integrating playful artistry with a clear
understanding of sometimes complex histories and technologies.

Submission deadline: July 15, 2008

Submit to:
Enid Baxter Blader: enid_at_enidbaxterblader.com
or Nicole Antebi: nantebi_at_mac.com

Please keep project abstracts under 250 words.
