PARAFONT

2007 - ongoing

55-gallon oil drum, water pump, hardware

sizes vary

PARAFONT (Tbilisi), 2007, is a series of working prototypes. Using pumps, four 55-gallon oil drums are modified into "parasitic fountains." Interrupting their normal circulation, the make-shift fountains are continuously drawing water from (and depositing back into) four different neo-traditional fountains along the Rustaveli in central Tbilisi. PARAFONT (Tbilisi) reflects the interconnection between the luxury that the European style fountains represent and Georgia's position in the transference of oil from the East to the West.
