TESTOSPEROM'PETE'S MOTORS exhibition in Great Barrington MA, Jun. - Aug 2009
Water, hoses, power washers, timers
This site specific installation is a refreshing triumph of life and a celebration of the elements. The shooting water should remind us of the history of the hydro powered valley. The installation also plays with the typology of the generic architecture of the two symmetrical buildings. During the day the straight lines of water intersect above a hidden garden in an 90° angle. They create an artificial cloud, which waters the wild flowers and the grass. At sunset with the light coming from behind the visitor a rainbow emerges.
TESTOSPEROM' acted as a strong sign for the exhibition, it could be seen from afar, and by changing one's position the rainbow appear in unexpected places.
