I have an interest in things that have infiltrated natural surroundings. Dams, in a way, are big walls set into landscape to perform a function. It made sense to me to insert (draw with a drill) a big wall onto/into a big wall.
The image is of the backside of Hoover Dam just before construction was finished. I like the tension of the image-- you donšt know which side youšre on. The dam may be holding the water back or the water could be coming from behind you.
Walls, dams, or graphite lines, it all seems to be about drawing to me.
