Circulator

Visitors to Brightwater Center's Environmental Education Center experience Blashfield’s multi-media installation in the lobby through screens mounted on the wall and in a porthole embedded in the floor.

Blashfield calls Circulator "...a poetic interpretation of the water cycle," helping visitors to understand and care about the science of the Brightwater treatment technology and its environmental benefits. Water takes myriad forms and interacts with objects throughout the piece, which plays out over seven media screens—five rectangular screens on the wall, one circular screen below them, and one circular screen embedded in the floor at the visitor's feet.
