We questioned our efforts to reconcile these two shores, and wondered whether a bridge has the potential to do that. Large parts of Goa comprise islands split by rivers and their tributaries.

Many stand in favour of it, and many oppose it too. In our installation, people bridged materials and spaces constantly. We sought to delve deeper into this bridging politics of Diwar.
