description  
In this studio, students designed site-specific memorials to mark the height of the floodwaters in the Ninth Ward. Calling these markers “hydrocaches,” they hope that the memorial sites will serve as permanent reminders of the flood and the necessity for hope in the face of devastation. Their hydrocaches designate spaces of communal memory and represent the vital, albeit destructive, properties of water, reminding us of its power in our lives. One hydrocache, for example, is composed of a bark-like skin woven from copper and brass plates; it collects and distributes rainwater like a celebratory fountain.
