When I was thirteen, I visited New York for the first time. As I looked up, trying to catch a glimpse of a skyscraper, some oddly shaped structures caught my attention. I mistook them for abandoned objects and kept them in my mind as nostalgic structures. Years later, I returned to this city to learn that these structures effectively supply water from above to one of the most populous places on earth. And yet they remain unseen by many.
I developed this project as my thesis for my MA in Media Studies at the New School. The idea was to turn people’s heads toward the unseen yet necessary structures of the city. I have always strived to find beauty in unlikely places, I blame the American author Henry Miller for that. More: narrative.ly/2012/10/water-from-above
