Artist's Description

Hidden for years under the streets of Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet district, the waters of the Basilica Cistern lapped undisturbed against the base of Corinthian marble columns. This Roman-era engineering feat was lost to public knowledge when the city was taken over by the Ottoman Turks, and remained unknown until citizens of the modern Turkish republic reported catching fish through holes in their basements. That was just a few decades ago; today carp still swim through the water at the base of the pillars.
