The Future as an Index/Indexing the Future: Storage, Value, and Water Management in Los Angeles
Sunday, April 11th at 12pm

As climate change brings more rain volatility and unpredictability to Los Angeles, policy makers, engineers, and business owners are having to rethink established approaches to water supply. Storage is emerging as a favored solution for managing this volatility; its forms reflect evolving ideas about value – present and future – and ways to maximize value capture through time.

Inspired by the newly commissioned public sculpture by Alexandre Dorriz , join Nadia Christidi for a talk that indexes transformations in water ‘storage’. This includes weaving stories of concrete infrastructure developments like stormwater to capture projects that manage supply volatility and remake the city, and abstract financial tools like water futures that manage price volatility and remake the market. These stories will be used to think through questions on water, value, and temporality, and to speculate on these in a climate-changed future.

This program is free and open to all. Advance registration is required. Link to register is here. I’ve attached the digital flyer for your use. The program is also listed here on our website.
