Blue Gold. Recently shown at Radiant Dark during Toronto IDS week. This years theme for the show was Assets and Values. This carpet is wool and silk. All of the rivers, tributaries and the great lakes are hand-knotted in gold silk. The issue of fresh drinking water the world over and the commodofication of this resource, is quickly becoming a dangerous issue. "Blue Gold takes its name from Maude Barlow's book of the same name "Blue Gold". Definitely recommended reading for anyone interested in finding out more about the commodification of water.
