Mniwiconi is the sacred recognition "water is life." We Are water is a re-languaging of that recognition within an ego-identified framework, so as to resonate with the cognitive framework of our current cultural landscape. The original installment of photographs from this campaign were made during the Standing Rock Rally in New York City. this series later birthed a facebook profile filter, which supported the campaign’s intention of appreciating how we are all connected in this together. We are water has been in conversation with water initiatives across the globe.

in Mniwiconi, we recognize the great beauty of water, and the many ways in which it represents and displays our innate connection to one another and this planet.
