Two cases of bottles, one containing a sample of water from all the burns, firths and lochs of Edinburgh’s watershed and the other containing waters from streams, rivers and reservoirs around the artist’s studio in Central Pennsylvania.

For traveling in Scotland and across the Atlantic, the boxes could be shut to become suitcases for the watersheds.
