This monsoon, the dam holds shallow water.

In this piece, I was exploring the relationship between the external environment and the internal domestic space. The structure, which borrows its design from a dam, is used as a metaphor for infrastructural interventions that control water. The pipes, which  simultaneously reference PVC pipes, irrigation systems, and stairs bring the dam into the domestic space. Collectively, these pieces question the potency we attach to our built environments and express the failure of architecture in controlling natural elements.
