universal indicators on balsa wood
Municipal wells have lost their former significance as centers of communication in public space. The once elemental
source of drinking water has been reinterpreted for water play: the basin and their designed shape are merely decoration,
automatic circulation pumps simulate a lively rippling. The project testing uses the fountains for its very own
and private purpose: various diagnostic and medical test strips dipped into the fountains react depending on the water
quality in different colors and deliver subtle, abstract images. In times of data being constantly collected in public space this project aims at forming a private database of colors and shades derived from public places as much as developing
alternative ways of painting and drawing.
