A Negotiable Utopia: The Humboldt Bay Project is an interdisciplinary video and essay project that interprets the built environment of Humboldt Bay—California's second largest estuary. This non-narrative observational documentary video (one of six in the project) examines the power infrastructure of Humboldt Bay, including its recently-upgraded and formerly nuclear power plant, its electrical grid and natural gas infrastructure, as well as this region's principal renewable energy resources.
