Is water access?

Who has control over the water?

And who owns this water?


NEPANT(LA) explores the topic of borders within the liminal space of Los Angeles, using USGS’s waterway mappings. Waterways, being hidden networks and structures that exist within our unknowing communities, have been historically overlooked, especially when contextualized with LA’s relationship to the LA River itself.


A visual slit scan flourish appears when the user enters the domains of a waterway, creating a live feed of one’s environment, disrupting the dichotomy of the visible versus the hidden structures living within the world.
