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 atop a pedestal, emptying endlessly into a small child's pool filled with river stones. The contraption creates a soothing ambient trickle that relaxes the gallery air. The work was inspired by themes of vice, meditation, and a loss of innocence.
