It’s been a quiet weekend as I recover from a cold, but I wanted to take this opportunity to share a piece that I’ve been woking on. This is a manipulated image transfer of fracking well sites. There are 37,104 registering fracking wells in the United States and on average, each well requires approximately 3 million gallons of water.

 

Clusters of well sites across the country are similar to the ones in this work. Their proximity to each other reflect the planned neighborhoods that are often found within miles, sometimes closer, to “fracking communities”.
