Eloisa Guanlao's investigation of water in southern Californ ia takes her to the heart of modern notions of wilderness\, western settlem ent\, the dynamics of rural-urban divide\, and the tension between technolo gical development and ecological aesthetic. She is interested in understand ing the historical and current attitudes about water. Guanlao looks at curr ent attitudes by setting up her "water" truck alongside food trucks at vari ous streets in southern California where she conducts a water survey and di stributes maps of southern California water sources. Her survey results\, a long with careful historical research into water usage anddistribution infr astructure\, reveal a heavy human impact on the natural distribution and pr ocess of the water cycle. The general public will have the opportunity to t race the results of her finding on a large-scale floor map of California wa ter sources. They will also be able to determine for themselves the cost an d benefits of water usage in southern California.
