Rule of Capture

Shown at Revelation Perth International Film Festival, 2017 and Aurora Picture Show, 2017

The rule of capture is the legal term which grants groundwater rights to land owners. Using 1950 Texas land survey and dowsing rod photographs, the animation speculates on water rights and the meaning of a glance/ a flutter/ a text asking both “Is there water underneath?” and “How do you know if they like you?”
