Description

Sandhogs' is the affectionate term for the miners who have risked their lives since 1970 to work on the new 60-mile water tunnel in New York City. Offering a window into the unseen systems of underground New York, LeVay explores the 'art form' of mining in the modernised city. Part of a multi-faceted project of photo, video, web and installation art exploring the mutual dependency of the surface city and the underground world, Sandhogs brings this vibrant and intricate subculture to the surface for the first time.'
