A Long Walk to Water

Ayushi Goyal

A long walk to water is designed to be a platform for these voices. Voices that were drowned as the backwaters rose. A space providing voice to the voiceless, in the river Narmada itself.
The installation is situated on the edge of Garudeshwar dam which is one such undergoing project. The basic function of the dam is to store the water during peak hour and generate power. However it is claimed that the main reason why the dam is being built is to make a path to a statue of unity through boating. With the end to this walk, visitors are stirred with a thought, a conflict of visions and emotions linked to the construction of the project, thus providing a remembrance to the sufferers.
