Origins

The traveling new-media exhibition, Water, Water Everywhere is — as are so many endeavors these days that seek to consider water –named after a short stanza in Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s famous seven-part poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner:

Water, water every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water every where
Nor any drop to drink.

The subtitle to our exhibit, Paean to a Vanishing Resource, expresses what is happening to the water on our planet, but on a hopeful and even celebratory note. Paean comes from the Greek, “a song pf joy, praise, or victory,” “a healing song.”

The beautiful photo of fierce waves on the Atlantic Ocean was taken by Shireen Malik, “official” Water, Water Everywhere photograher. http://www.shireenmalik.com/
