Mapping Rivers and Khlongs in Bangkok

Scott Kildall is investigating the waterways of Bangkok, namely the Chao Phraya river and connected system of khlongs (canals). He’s looking at environmental pollution due to rapid industrialization and development. Using community data-collection and mapping though DIY science, Scott will guide participants in an exploration that focuses on water pollution. The resulting public projects aim to stimulate a conversation around how people can do their own mapping of environmental pollution as a self-organized activity, resulting in meaningful physical data-visualization artworks.
