photo from NASA’s eyes on the Earth blog Ichkeul Lake in northern Tunisia.
Top: November 14, 2001. Bottom: July 29, 2005; the water level is higher, but a large part of the lake appears red due to the presence of aquatic plants. Ichkeul Lake and wetlands are a major stopover point for hundreds of thousands of migrating birds who come to feed and nest. It is the last remaining lake in a chain that once extended across North Africa, and has badly deteriorated as a result of the construction of three dams on rivers supplying it and its marshes, which have cut off almost all inflow of freshwater. The Tunisian government plans to undertake various measures to retain freshwater in the lake on a year-round basis and reduce the salinity of the lake.
SPRINKLER FOUNTAIN by Suzon Fuks (Australia), Miljana Peric (Serbia) and Tara Rebele (USA) can be plotted as a net with many idea-sourcing knots, rain of conceptualized drops, cradle for discontinuous fluxes in which particles of waterdreams and waternightmares meet each other for a moment or two.
It is a place where you can leave your waterstory, waterpoem, watersketch, or whaterever: email@example.com > subject: water.
It is a time when you can get other kinds of aesthetic fluctuations, through the force of streams which have to be caused by decorative and dramatic tidal resonances.
We can’t tell you any more, because this plot is highly dependent upon the coming myriad of tiny aqua-semantical dataflows.
The only saying that would flow around for now is: to sprinkle or not to sprinkle?
SPRINKLER FOUNTAIN is part of VIRTUAL FOUNTAINS: for 101010 UpStage Festival, there will be presentation of initial ideas of a new project about WATER, a currency in all cultures, a compelling issue providing metaphors and vocabulary for creative exchange online and on-site.
In other words: please send us before the festival memories, tales & media about water that you are happy for us to use: firstname.lastname@example.org > subject: water, or just turn up at the fountain on the day! we will post a link closer to the date.
