Artist Lauren Bon reimagines the L.A. Aqueduct: “Bon wants to ‘bend the river back into the city’ with La Noria, a grand piece of art that she sometimes calls ‘a device of wonder’ and at other times ‘avant-garde nostalgia.’ In the process, she has shaped her artistic practice to shake the foundation of L.A.’s relationship with the river and water by demystifying the Los Angeles Aqueduct, acquiring the first individual water right on the river in more than a century, and soon, penetrating the river’s concrete channel to reestablish a connection between the city and its source.”

Industrial scars: The environmental cost of consumption – in pictures: “Environmental artist J Henry Fair captures the beauty and destruction of industrial sites to illustrate the hidden impacts of the things we buy – the polluted air, destroyed habitats and the invisible carbon heating the planet.”

BIOVESSEL an Ecosystem Powered By Food Waste: “An indoor ecosystem that decomposes food waste the natural way. The significant elements to replicating a natural environment for decaying are earthworms and soil. The crawling creatures break down the food into miniature pieces which get mixed in the soil, dispersing the nutrients from the food waste.”

Israel Proves the Desalination Era Is Here: “Amazingly, Israel has more water than it needs. The turnaround started in 2007, when low-flow toilets and showerheads were installed nationwide and the national water authority built innovative water treatment systems that recapture 86 percent of the water that goes down the drain and use it for irrigation — vastly more than the second-most-efficient country in the world, Spain, which recycles 19 percent.”
