Abstract
This presentation explores the simultaneous merging and separation of disparate neighborhoods along the short pathway of a small creek in the Marin County watershed, a creek that in its 3.8 mile course undergoes significant transformation from "pure" source to "toxic" destination. A series of color photographic images, the project serves as an exposé of some of the socioeconomic and ecological injustices in one of the wealthiest counties in America, where NIMBYism is rampant.
