Aquaphilia IV: Critical Infrastructure

Adrian Fish

The photographs in Aquaphilia Project IV: Critical Infrastructure investigate contemporary municipal wastewater treatment facilities. Most people seldom think about how different the nature of contemporary urban life would be without water and wastewater management. The incredible investment in increasingly advanced technologies required to safely neutralize organic matter ironically requires facilities with surreal, science fiction-like qualities. Fish’s artistic interest is in documenting the aesthetics of critical infrastructure.
