The original New Fountain expands, exponentially, into Big New Fountain.

The work is part of a series of portable fountains meant to celebrate the more tangental corners of our society. Big New Fountain is made from 39 plain, 5-gallon buckets. It celebrates both our society's continuous transference of materials -- on a global level, as well the individual workers that keep this vast mechanism functioning. The buckets are, simultaneously, acting in their pre and post industrial states.
