Lynnette Postuma is a landscape architect living and working in Toronto who is interested in urban water issues and is constantly curious about how people interact with public space.
Water Wuz Here is a process-based installation that visualizes the momentary presence water in the urban landscape. Each morning, the plaza surface at the Dufferin amphitheatre will be soaked with water and, as the moisture evaporates, hand-drawn chalk outlines will trace the edges between wet and dry. These contours of moisture will reveal and memorialize the process of evaporation and allow the viewer to consider a product of this perpetual but nearly imperceptible process.

Curated by Victoria Taylor, and featuring 26 new projects, Grow Op 2014 is the Gladstone Hotel’s annual alternative landscape and urban design event, celebrating innovative ideas and conceptual responses to sustainable placemaking across a broad range of creative practices.
