The fountain is a sculptural work by cloud-based artist Christiane Peschek that combines the traditional concept of the fountain as a public/collective meeting point with cutting edge technology. The 3d printed concrete fountain refers in its shape to an internet-based contemporary youth culture, where the rediscovery of 1990’s tribals are used as a form of self-expressions. Following the original purpose of a fountain as a source of water and therefor life itself, the artists interpretation is expanded to a source of of eternal youth symbolised by the socio-cultural repetition of teenage culture (in public space). A concept that is inhabits the internet in its contemporary function. Installed in the public, the fountain, with its digital origin, can unfold it’s greater potential as a memento of phygital existence.more information
