Urban Watersheds is an exhibition of interactive digital artworks that visualize landscape relationships within cities. Through data visualization and simulation-based artworks, viewers can experiment and explore how urbanization shapes ecological change. Urban Watersheds fosters space to consider how our communities relate to local waterways and regional ecosystems amidst climate change.

The interactive artworks included in this exhibition feature generative visualizations, dynamic soundscapes and custom computer hardware. These experimental projects were developed with funding from Engage with Nature-Based Solutions, BC Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts. Urban Watersheds is an exploration of how interactive technology and visual art can inspire deeper understanding about large-scale relationships between ecosystems and human communities.
