Abstract:
This project explores an approach to Landscape Architecture which engages community in the making of art in public places along an art walk - to raise awareness of the state's water issues and the Floridan Aquifer System. The design responds to the town's folk culture and vision for revitalization, yet does more by establishing a plan for the expanding project to be comprised of the work of individuals in art/ ecoliteracy workshops across the region. The art learning module was explored in three pilot workshops where participants created plaster molds representative of themselves, to be later cast in glass and fabricated onto an expanding public sculpture. The process gives participants a voice toward positive change as a unified social call for the conservation of the Floridan Aquifer System.

An artistic formation representing a geological spring vent lies below the surface, encircled by a stepped path. The lowest two steps are pressed with artifacts of the prehistoric and Paleolithic eras respectively. The third step and main path is unmarked, yet reflects the present age of industry and technology. Each level speaks to the changing landscape in relation to our human imprint over time. On the upper level, it is void of any impressions, but metaphorically marked by the footsteps of those who take this path. At this level, the aquiPROJECT begins, and participants will tell the story over time, as glass castings are added, each one representative of the individual who made it. This human imprint becomes a growing and unified voice of awareness, calling for the conservation of our natural water resources. A steel sculpture emerges from the spring vent, mimicking the power and fluctuations of the water which runs beneath our feet, forced by pressure to the surface, through the spring vent, and into the river. The two units intertwine and intersect at irregular moments, each moving through time on separate paths. Where the steel sculpture ceases, the expanding aquiPROJECT continues to meander, retreating into wooded slopes and sculpture reappears near the spring house and reaches across the river, the two units are reconciled -no longer opposing powers. Still fluctuating, undulating, and changing, but at last, in synchronic harmony
