The pathways under the bustling streets are an arterial system which roots our cities to the earth and mimics the pulsating nature of our own bodies. It is a place both familiar and mysterious.

The vast subterranean system of pipes under our cities is industrial and solid in character - an array of huge steel tanks, pumps, and cement structures. Yet paradoxically, the essence of this system is rooted in the ephemeral - process, movement, and real time. The transitory and the concrete meet in the urban infrastructure.
