In the following I discuss participation in the 'Watershed Plus' Dynamic Environment lab ( which saw five artists following the City of Calgary's water supply from its glacial source through rivers, treatment plants, maintenance yards, pipes, meters and households. The ongoing project, 'How Deep Is Your Love?' uses ‘dirty’ pop music to travel through the necessarily inaccessible, hygienic industrial, economic and romantic water infrastructure. The project follows the movement, actions and technologies of Calgary’s leak locators, exploring the role of public art in relationship to the water infrastructure as a material negotiation of publicness.
