JAMES DARLING: Everyone lives downstream



24 Nov - 19 Dec 2004


It was soon after beginning a journey through the jungle of Sarawak in June 2004 that I saw a large sign on the entrance to a water treatment plant: everyone lives downstream. A simple and pertinent statement for the people of Sarawak, for the island of Borneo, for the island of Australia, for the people of the world. What is being passed on to us and what we pass on to others. Being positioned in the landscape. Being placed in hydrological time.
