ARTWORK OF THE WEEK

Shy Fountain (2012)
Simon Faithfull

A fountain that only exists when no-one is there.

Connected to a series of movement sensors, the fountain can only be seen in the distance (particularly at night when lit from below). As soon as the viewer tries to approach, however, the fountain and lights switch off, leaving only the wet stone as a trace of its recent presence. If the viewer stays still, again, the fountain will cautiously reappear… getting progressively higher till it reaches its full height once more.
