"The Charles at Boston"
Located at the new Charles River Dam adjacent to the Charlestown Bridge in Downtown Boston.
The exhibits and media show introduce a unique solution to river flooding and the return to a healthier ecosystem - the combination of built and non-built solutions. Massive pumps in the dam "push" water into the harbor when water levels are high and wetlands upriver absorb flood waters for slow release downstream.
An installed 10-minute media show included rear-projected slides, sequenced light boxes, and a custom-designed electronic map - all synchronized to a stereo soundtrack with original music composed by John Kusiak and Rob Van.
"Floodgates and Satellites" was a permanent installation in the Waltham headquarters of the New England Division of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It featured multiple interactive maps, installed media shows, and a window view into the regions's Reservoir Control Center.
