An audiovisual installation by Jennifer Stock, Water Studies was created for the Brattleboro Museum and Arts Center in Brattleboro, VT for the museum's Spring 2014 exhibit. Bordered by the Connecticut River and bisected by the vigorous energies of the Whetstone Brook, Brattleboro’s topography is defined by waterways. The installation projects abstracted visions revealed via reflections in the town’s water, complemented by processed ambient field recordings. From river to creeks to pools of rainwater, Brattleboro’s waterways offer altered constructions of locality, loosened and modulated by motion and the reflection of light. Water Studies, Brattleboro offers an abstract anatomy of the town, a literal and metaphoric reflection on the small details that create a sense of place.
