Space in Circles

Space in Circles consists of a large circle surrounding two smaller circles with enclosing walls of water shooting up from jets in the ground. The circles merge into each other subdividing the water pavilion into smaller spaces within the structure. The water walls randomly rise and fall, defining all possible configurations of the space before changing shape and appearance. Visitors are allowed to move within the structure from space to space, finding themselves in differently shaped spaces inside, or suddenly on the outside, of the pavilion without any possibility to control or govern the confinement or exclusion.
Installed in an open, public space the water pavilion activates the area and invites people to make use of the work, either as a space for seclusion and relaxation or the opposite, a place of pure joy and playfulness. Children will dash in immediately, adults hesitate at first, then often give a jolt and dare to go in after  all.
