One piece displayed at the Women and Water Rights: Rivers of Regeneration exhibition at the Nash Gallery was a video/sculpture by Liz Dodson and James Brenner. I was drawn to the piece initially because of the water sounds and music coming from it. The piece had a video of students from Perpich Center for Arts Education dancing projected on to the pool of water. I liked this piece, but I think I would enjoy it more in pieces, or simpler. If the extra music and the video were removed, the sounds of the trickling water would be clearer and the rippling on the pool in the middle would have been more visible. I would have rather enjoyed the music and video of dancing as a different work.
