The Story of Water – Erie Canal

The Publication »The Story about Water — The Erie Canal as a Site of Untold Stories« by Linda Zhang and Biko Mandela Gray, documents and explores marginalised histories of the people the made the Erie Canal possible. The topic of water described by in their own words:

Water. It’s all about water. Water is formless form; it adheres to the container within which it finds itself. And in so doing, water aks us to think about form; the power of form and the power to deform. Water dissolves as much as it moves, fills, and gives life and such indeterminacy offers the space for a meditation on how life and lives along the Erie Canal are formed, transformed, deformed and reformed.
