Periferry is housed on the ferry M.V. CHANDARDINGA formerly run by Department of Inland Water Transport, Govt of Assam. Built in 1972 this vessel was used to ferry people from across the river Brahmaputra and also for cargo goods to many places in National waterway 2.

The project aims to restore the ferry into a media lab using renewable energy sources and eco-friendly material.This would be a turning point to look differently on the Inland water transport on Brahmaputra which is also an important water body of Asia, connecting Tibet, China, India, Bangladesh. Revitalizing the space of the river and river side that became sluggish after the road transport gained in importance.

It gets its name from the Aryan myth of being the son of Lord Brahma. It has inspired many artists, singers and poets of the region, finding references in folk and oral traditions.
