« Mankind is constantly struggling with two contradictory processes. One tends to establish unification, while the other seeks to maintain or restore diversification. »

 

« We refuse to admit the fact of cultural diversity; we prefer to reject out of culture, into nature, everything that does not conform to the standard under which we live. »

Claude Levi Strauss, Race et Histoire 

 

In this installation project, my point is to represent loyalty to the various cultural backgrounds in the shape of a fountain. The different colors meet, mingle, begin to melt, and then finally return to their original color. 

 

The loop imposed by the fountain induces a perpetual motion.
