“Uppers and Downers” by Chris Vorhees and Simparch
For the entire year of 2012 an indoor rainbow fountain dripped in the lobby of the Smart Museum. It was made of kitchen cabinets with doors flung open wide against gravity in an arcing rainbow of shelves, over a counter whose sink—the fountain—flooded a floor. What a clever dream.
