With Electric Fountain, Tim Noble and Sue Webster present their hybrid reinterpretation of the gushing Renaissance fountains in Rome and the modern day fountains in front of iconic Las Vegas hotels such as the Bellagio. The work is both minimal and over-the-top.
This 35 foot tall sculpture is constructed using neon tubing, steel and 3,390 LED light bulbs which electrically pulse to create a spectacular tiered-cascading fountain. The monumental sculpture was originally installed at the Rockefeller Plaza in February 2008, creating an electrically pulsating centrepiece.
Electric Fountain exhibits a striking symmetry and an elegant minimalism, and this pop fountain immerses the viewer within its hypnotic and luminous glow. Working directly with the artists, Sedition carefully recreates the effects of the original sculpture in a new digital format.
