Abstract:

  • Ionic Satellite Fountain is an artwork that establishes a sensorial and spectral connection to the satellites passing over the installation site. The liquid jets created by nozzles are made of salt water, a very conductive medium. The flow of these jets is controlled by a computer that predicts the passes of satellites, positioning them with the best direction and angle for reception. The jets are connected to a radio so visitors can hear signals emitted from the satellites, with the streams serving as antennas.
