"An hour-long travelogue structured around the progress of the L.A. River, from the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains to Long Beach harbor." – Village Voice
"Graphs the massive technological harnessing of water, turning it into a pulsing, strobing kaleidoscope of the mind’s eye."– ARTFORUM
"At once familiar and alien, mundane and otherworldly, lovely and acidic, Psychohydrography is an epic example of art’s power to seduce." – Los Angeles Times
Beginning at origins in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, Psychohydrography tracks the flow of water, step-by-step, through Owens Valley, aqueducts, and concrete troughs in the city of Los Angeles, to Long Beach delta and the Pacific Ocean. Constructed from tens of thousands of still images and their neighboring sounds, the film is also a journey through a natural and industrial topography of striking conflicts and contradictions. In its contemplation of the natural process of an essential element of life, and the banal, unseen system that supplies Los Angeles its water, Psychohydrography is a meditation on our dependence on and alienation from the natural world.
