Multimedia Journalist Devi Lockwood- 1,001 Stories on Water & Climate Change

In January 2018 Devi came to Seattle to share with Karin the stories she has collected from around the world. They moved together, walked Carkeek Park, and listened to over 5 hours from 1,001 Stories on Water and Climate Change. During their week together they also conducted interviews with local scientists, policy influencers, a tribal leader, a researcher-composer, an environmental activist-dancer, to name a few.

In December 2019 Karin and composers Kaley and Jessi began combing through the stories to weave together a unique sound creation with voices from Seattle interviews for 1,001 Stories on Water and Climate Change, a recorded original score, and electronics.
