Ganges Water Machine: Constructing a Dynamic Atlas of the Ganga River Basin
WATCH THE FULL VIDEO

Watch the full video of the talk (above) by Anthony Acciavatti focusing on a decade-long-project to create a dynamic atlas of the Ganges Machine–a method of mapping that exposes the juxtaposing layers of infrastructure and adjoining built forms. The goal of this dynamic atlas is to not only map space, but also map how spaces change over time. 

Acciavatti also discusses the importance of mapping the choreography of water and human settlement at a time when the Government of India is beginning to invest a $1.5 billion loan from the World Bank to clean up the Ganges river.
