Michael Forsberg and Mike Farrell have teamed up to answer the questions:
Where does our water come from?
Where does it go?
How do we manage and use it?
The Platte Basin Time-lapse Project - PBT - is an online forum where we'll explore these questions using time-lapse technology applied through an entire watershed, from the high country in Colorado, through the dams and reservoirs of Wyoming, to the prairies and croplands of Nebraska.
Our project links images, videos, data, and text to convey a story of the Platte River Basin that spans places and spans time - by days, months, years, even decades. By compressing time we'll show the river's processes in ways that we can't normally perceive them. And in doing so inspire a conversation about, and increase our understanding of, this river that is the lifeblood of our region.

Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.
I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.
Here I've posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds).
"We Love Being Lakota" is the first in a series of videos and texts from our documentary project "The Native and the Refugee", connecting the struggles taking place on Indian reservations in the United States with those in Palestinian refugee camps in the Middle East. In February and March, we presented this video at T Marbouta in Beirut, Lebanon; at the Jordanian Women’s Union in Amman, Jordan; and at the Freedom Theatre in the Jenin Refugee Camp in the West Bank. It was produced in collaboration with Adam Khalil.
