Alberto was granted a residency at the Kathmandu Contemporary Arts Center a few months later, and my research began in earnest. In Kathmandu, the Bagmati River is a very pretty river, at its origin, but it gains large amounts of untreated sewage, and large levels of pollution of the river exist due primarily to the region's large population. Alberto had also been discussing the project with Rajendra Suwal, Deputy Director of World Wildlife Fund Nepal, who was interested in working together to integrate the project with their Green Generation public educational initiative.

An inscription dated 477 AD describes the river as Bagvati parpradeshe (वाग्वति पारप्रदेशे) and subsequently in Gopalraj Vanshavali. It was during this installation that Alberto was approached to consider doing a similar project about the Bagmati River that flows though the middle of Kathmandu, Nepal.
