Sweeping Lines in the Mojave
At the foot of Iron Mountain in the Mojave Desert, a thin reflective line winds down the gradually sloping terrain toward its source at the Colorado River. The sweeping line blends with the visual flow of the desert terrain winding between dunes and mountains and following and intertwining with the worn pathways of naturally flowing water. The reflection is from the surface of the water that flows through the Colorado River Aqueduct supplying water to Southern California from the Colorado River. The Iron Mountain Pumping Station lifts the water over higher terrain and ensures a steady flow of water across the desert.
