Sculpting Fountain

Qiu Siyao (CN)

Staring at the mesmerizing flow of water in a fountain, one may very well wish to be enveloped in this timeless moment. Today, high-speed cameras can capture the movement of liquids down to the very thousandth of a second, but such videos and images are just that: videos and images.

In Sculpting Fountain a single frame is captured and solidified into a static sculpture. As the viewer approaches this active fountain of liquid metal, it freezes, allowing him or her to capture their singular, personal slice of time.
