Ten thousand plastic deli containers map the Yadkin River and its tributaries. Water from each tributary was collected from the creeks, streams and rivers, poured into containers, and put into a map on the gallery’ s floor. Subtle differences in color and clarity of the water distinguish differing waterways.
