House: 9' x 7' x 9' deep; Pond: 12' x 13' x 1' deep

WATERHOUSE is a two part sculpture of sprinkling house and holding pond. The house rained upon itself from a misting-hose roof. The pond, holding oil-slicked water, created a refuge for a tiny floating house, an echo of the larger structure. The single-day event of WATERHOUSE cleared the air, watered the grass, and misted children young and old. WATERHOUSE, on a basic level, is a microcosm of that large water house, our planet. Thanks: My deep appreciation goes to Socrates, Athena, and Enrico for making everything "possible." Special thanks to Gene Flores for finding a plumber on Sunday.
