collective exhibition “Examples to follow”,
Cultural Park of Valparaíso,
The “build a river” project is part of the collective “Examples to follow”, an exhibition that focuses on models of sustainability. The idea of this work is to create a channel according to the map line of the Marga-Marga river that crosses the fifth region of Chile. The pipe, made of ceramic and bronze, is fed by a 200-liter water conatiner, functioning as drain for two hours daily to water a network of Jacarandá trees. The piece uses the park’s slope as a gravitational system of falling water.
Build a river, 2017 / ceramic pieces modeled after pipes for rainwater drainage, bronze, 200-liter drum, hose.
