These photographic images investigated the collapse of community utilisation of water resources in times of drought; resulting in a questioning of the future of that utilisation. The collection consists of 5 large-scale digital images depicting a clash between society and a drought-affected river system. They were part of collaborative exhibition between artists and scientists that focused on critical issues in water management in the Murray and Murrumbidgee River catchment areas. The exhibition aim was to capture 'water' through photography, textiles, mixed media, sound, sculpture, video and science based computer generated work. These photographic images present a creative and theoretical contribution to the ongoing discourse about environmental concerns surrounding water usage. The project, a response to National Water Week, was funded by Charles Sturt University's Institute for Land, Water and Society, to promote the further engagement of regional arts practice with community issues in Australia.
