Nature is cyclic, every season has a different task and appearance. Water has in every season a different character. Rainwater is changing its appearance from water to snow and ice. Rivers are changing speed, level and physical state. Even underground water is changing in its volume.

What about fountains? After a research in Ljubljana I realised that fountains only work for one of the three stages of water.  I want to create a fountain, which embraces and deals with the different stages of water and celebrates it.

This visual research of water fountains through out different seasons is part of The Fountain project made for design biennial BIO50 in Ljubljana. 2014
