An oak structure supports two barrels, one located on its upper section and one on the lower one.
A flow of pisco flows continuously between them. The first barrel overflows horizontally and falls towards the second, which receives the content to be absorbed and pushed again by a pump. Construction for a Fall is a structure created in conjunction with Rodrigo Carrión, which is based on the term construction art or “art for construction” that was born with Russian Constructivism. The geometric structure becomes a machine which function is to generate a constant and endless cyclical liquid drop.
