Basia Irland is one of the foremost artists working with ecological systems and she is currently writing a series of blogs, Basia Irland | Voices, for National Geographic, each of which speaks for a river, imagining the world from the perspective of an “urban working river,” a river “interconnected with the struggles of my people,” “slow moving and bucolic-looking” river.

So far she has given voice to the Ping River, Chiang Mai, and the Chao Phraya, Bangkok, both in Thailand; the Siem Reap, Cambodia; the Kamo River, Japan; the Eagle River in Colorado and the Yaqui River, Sonora, Mexico.
