In our works we explore aspects of air and atmosphere. Water and air act in similar flow patterns. The Boulder ditches provide a life blood network of water to the Boulder valley allowing agriculture to take root in an otherwise dry and arid prairie grass environment. Without the ditch network, Boulder would not have developed. We are fascinated by both the history and the hidden aspects of this vital waterway network.

The following images are a proposal for an on-location kinetic sculpture. It has not been built yet, and may change a little between now and installation. It is inspired by the historic photo of the current wheel that is in Boulder's Central Park.
