The structure is that of an outhouse, the sound that emerges is one of a woman crying from within. 

This installation, constructed of corrugated metal, is based on an outhouse design, sometimes also used for lookouts; the material, in the global south, is often used for housing and sheds.

Bombshelters references those who are victims of Western military aggression. The viewing audience is implicated as witnesses, active or helpless voices, or consumers.
