Two locations were filmed with a digital camera- the Bull Run Watershed and the reservoirs in Mount Tabor Park in Portland, Oregon. These two places are intimately connected, as the watershed delivers the majority of Portland's drinking water to the city's grid. Footage from each location is projected across one another inside the gallery.
