A fountain and anti-monument for the post industrial landscape, this installation is inspired by the mysterious and complex underground infrastructure that exists beneath New York City's surface. Here, it bursts up out of the ground, spilling water from a large steel pipe and offering a perch to a portentous black bird that appears both ominous and sorrowful.
