Water Mining is an interactive sculpture built to collect and amplify the underwater sounds of the Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park lake in Indianapolis. The work was first commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art as part of the Autumn Equinox celebration event in 2014. The work includes a live musical response to the sculpture broadcasts using amplified water and electronic sounds. Versions of Water Mining have been commissioned for the Indianapolis In Light In festival in 2016 and the Sound Expeditions project (2017).
