Floating Waterfall Art Installations That Touch The Hardt (Part 1)


Part of artist Olafur Eliasson’s Versailles exhibition, The Waterfall is a massive, life-size replica of an actual waterfall that almost doesn’t seem real. The plumes of water appear from mid-air before pouring down into the Grand Canal at the Palace of Versailles.Olafur is one of our favorite artists.

 

 


Floating Fountains by Isamu Noguchi, Osaka, Japan

These decidedly modern fountains appear to float with no connection to ground or water over an artificial lake. A brilliant cinematic feat of artistic ingenuity and clever plumbing they were dreamed up by the Californian sculptor and landscape architect Isamu Noguchi for Expo’ 70, the first World’s Fair to be hosted in Japan. Only when they are not working is Noguchi’s mystifying game given away. Water is pumped up to the sculpted floating fountains through vertical pipes invisible when the fountains flow. Happily, Noguchi’s artwork has remained long after the futuristic 1970 exhibition had vanished into folk memory.

There Is Truly Something To Be Said About A Piece Of Art That Blends Into The Surrounding In Which It Was Placed. Blending Seamlessly Into It’s Surrounding Environment While Not Disturbing It’s And Actually Enhancing The Surroundings, Is The Epitome Of A Good Design Becoming A Great Design.
