Fluid States is a multi-media installation by interdisciplinary artist and York University Visual Arts Professor Holly Ward. This exhibition was created on-site in unceded Secwépemc territory (one of many territories upon which the TMX pipeline expansion project is currently taking place), deploying a series of creative practices aimed towards developing a deeper understanding of water in the context of resource- extraction based economies.

Programmed by Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology at the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (AMPD) as part of The Year of the Arts at AMPD.
