In "Plughole" (2017), a static camera is trained on a standard 6-hole bathroom sink drain. The video depicts a stream of water that is redirected in an attempt to fill each hole perfectly with the flow of the faucet, moving from one hole to the next. The drain's function as a receptacle for water becomes a kind of short-circuit, as water itself becomes the material that plugs its own pathway.
