The Stream / The Boat / The Shore / The Bridge

In a world where we all want something, but don’t always know how to get it you’ll have the chance to see the world from four perspectives - The Stream / The Boat / The Shore / The Bridge - and add your thoughts, your voice and your hands to the action. Sometimes connected, sometimes divided, you’ll have some questions to answer and decisions to make.

Water flows through the city. Where did it come from? Where will it go? Will you go with the flow?
