Most fountains look somewhat gloomy if they don’t spout water, but there is always something to see with this fountain even is the water is shut off. And this was exactly what artist Bas Lugthart intended when he was commissioned to make this design. In his design Lugthart uses the blue tube, as well as water and even wind and gravity as his material. Without water spectators see the profile of a face and the figure completes as soon as the fountain starts spouting: the arch formed by the water results in a different hair style with each gust of wind.
