“You’ve got exploding urban populations, increased pollution and a need to address those things in a meaningful way,’’ said Ian Barbour, general manager of Dow Chemical’s Water Solutions unit. “Of course, we’re investing significantly in the water business.” Most analysts expect the water market in the United States to be worth at least $150 billion by 2010. And it may happen even sooner than that. Arid cities like Los Angeles and Phoenix already grapple with sporadic water shortages. New York City’s water — once lauded for its purity — is getting cloudy, and the American Society of Civil Engineers has given the pipes and other parts of the country’s creaky water system a D minus." via worldwaterwars.com

JT Herbicide- drawings 2009


Atrazine, pen and ink on letter-size paper, 2009

"Atrazine, 2-chloro-4-(ethylamine)-6-(isopropylamine)-s-triazine, an organic compound consisting of an s-triazine-ring is a widely used herbicide.Its use is controversial due to its effects on nontarget species, such as on amphibians, and because of widespread contamination of waterways and drinking water supplies. There are also thought to be implications for human birth defects, low birth weights and menstrual problems. Like many commercial products, it is sold under numerous trade names. Its use is banned in the European Union but is still one of the most widely used herbicides in the United States with 76 million pounds applied in 2003. " via wikipedia

Icy Bodies




Comet simulation
Comets originate from deep space objects known as icy bodies, made mostly out of water ice, ammonia and solid carbon dioxide. Here in these images dry ice twirls in water like comets move through space; ever- changing, fitful, and slowly dying until only fading clouds and memory remain.
Installation by Shawn Lani at the San Francisco Exploratorium.
