Domestic Infrastructure #2
Medium: Interactive Fountain
Materials: Cast iron drain pipes, antique hand pump, electric pump, wood, steel, plumbing
and audio equipment.
Dimensions: 6.1m x 7.3m x 1.5m
Gallery visitors are invited to use an antique hand pump to move water through the system and listen to the resulting gurgles and flushing sounds. Microphones and hydrophones are placed inside the pipes to detect and amplify the movement of water in real time. Attempted repairs in the form of shop rags tied around the joints are unable to stop water from leaking out and dripping down the sculpture.
