William Lamson's "Badwater" is a complex installation of objects, materials, and processes that create an abiotic ecosystem in the gallery. In a time when extreme weather conditions have become a reality around the world, "Badwater" uses a climate controlling infrastructure to create an accelerated cycle of flood and drought, inspired by the saltwater spring in Death Valley’s Badwater Basin and the resilient ecosystem around it.
