Waterscape #2, Reservoir No.2, Centennial Park NSW. 2013

"Water commonly becomes alienated from its natural environment, as a result of earlier generations appropriating water for irrigation and urban developments. Removing water from its native landscape is a powerful political act. It can also be the source of serious conflict between vested interests.
I wanted to re-imagine these ‘lost’ waterways, so I got my light-painting tools to work.
In this image, water is being released from the top of the historic Centennial Park No. 2 Reservoir, which was built in 1925 and holds 90 megalitres of water.
After 89 years of incarceration these waters now run free!
