After the Deluge serves as a demonstration of the practical imagination applied to the ecology of water. Taking Leonardo da Vinci’s "deluge" drawings of catastrophic floods as its starting point, and inspired by his lifelong study of all aspects of water, the dialogues in this book gather together artists and scientists to discuss the fluidity, rising, contamination, and disappearance of water. Creative expression is examined in fields as diverse as art history, musical composition, architecture, painting, biology, infectious diseases, civil engineering, and fluid dynamics. This beautifully illustrated book also documents the exhibition "Aquiferious Virginia," which accompanied the dialogues.
