Ring of Blue creates a portable interactive exhibition for the Catapult Arts Caravan in rural India. It includes documentary history, people’s geography and cultural expression in articulating water relations in their environment. Work 1 features an animated bucket in a dry well. Work 2, activated by visitors’ presence, combines a live video from an aquarium with text concerning water-related issues in the exhibition area. Work 3 is an interactive map-installation that uses everyday objects associated with water and imbues them with the power to summon video or audio extracts.
