Water Meter Maids

These costumes were designed and fabricated in Carrizozo, New Mexico, using the metal sidewalk covers of local water meters as a block print matrix. This nondescript and often overlooked component of infrastructure is highlighted as key design feature. The Water Meter Maids are devoted guardians of an essential element.
