"The Water Catalogue" was created for The Contemporary Art Television (CAT) Fund.

"The Water Catalogue" by video artist Bill Seaman is a collage-style piece filled with images of water. Images include bodies of water in different seasons, a sprinkler system, rain as viewed from a car window, water-skiers, an ice-fishing shack, and some underwater photography.

The music, which consists of moody electronic music with half-spoken, half-sung lyrics reflecting on the qualities of water, was composed and produced by Bill Seaman.
