doug aitken: fountain installation at art basel 2012

'fountain (earth fountain)' by doug aitken
acryl glass, metal, pumping system, colored methyl cellulose, lava stones
dimensions: 136 x 198.5 x 92 cm

mixed-media artist doug aitken from california has conceived ‘fountain (earth fountain)’, a tabletop sculpture at the artist’s
booth for his installation for zurich’s galerie eva presenhuber at art basel 2012. letters spelling the word ‘art’ are the base
of a cascading thick liquid, resembling either chocolate or a kind of earthly sludge by most gallerygoers’ estimation.

the piece is made from acrylic glass, metal, colored methyl cellulose and is controlled by a pumping system for the bubbling
and sliding of the liquid.

(the liquid is not actually chocolate or mud but colored methyl cellulose)
