The Fountain of Memory is a large-scale 360-degree installation that celebrates light, water, audio, and amazing reactivity. The base of the structure consists of framing with semi-translucent panels between. Within the structure, full-color high-frame rate LED lighting slowly animates and give the base an unearthly glow.
Microphones record the ambience from the environment, and the audio is looped, warped, and played back remixed through a sound system in The Fountain of Memory’s base. Towering above the glowing structure will be bursts of illuminated water, throbbing and pulsing along with the familiar, yet inter-dimensional echoes emanating from the installation.

After a devastating highway accident with our fountain trailer, we had to completely disassemble the installation in order to get it back to its home in Colorado. A new trailer was purchased, The Fountain was re-worked, and we installed it in beautiful, Taos, NM for a fantastic new public art festival called The Paseo.
