Libations is a fountain made from an assemblage of found and crafted objects. A hydroponics pump runs water through an iconic Budweiser 40oz, into a lounging ceramic gut, emptying endlessly into a child's pool filled with stones. The contraption creates a relaxing ambient trickle, reminiscent of urine splashing into a toilet, soothing the gallery air.
