…no beginning no end/circle the earth/blessed water/blood of life…

Jane Tsong's artwork is installed in three locations and actively blesses the three elements produced by the plant: water, air, and biosolids, or earth.

Blessings are activated as each element departs the treatment process and continues its life cycle in the natural world. The water blessing, titled …no beginning no end/circle the earth/blessed water/blood of life…, is located at the disinfection basin, the final point before the water leaves the plant on its journey to Puget Sound, or as reclaimed water for irrigation purposes. The air blessing, called …air help us bless with each breath all creatures of land, sea and air… is located at the odor control building, revealing the invisible current of odorless air leaving the stacks. Blessings for the Biosolids… is located in the Solids Building hopper bay where trucks are loaded with biosolids for their journey to the wheat fields of the plateau.
