Hydrospheres de Linda Covit

The installation

Three see-through metallic structures are positioned on the site of the artwork, suggesting spherical drops of water momentarily compressed as they land on the quay. 

During summer months, a water effect rounds out the installation. Mist rises from the centre of each structure, moving upwards and outwards across the sculpture. The amount of mist dispersed is always directly related to the river's water level. A water-level probe placed in the river and connected to a control device makes it possible to emit more mist when the water level rises, and less mist when it subsides.

During evening hours, the installation will be enhanced by lights embedded in the ground inside of each sculpture. The three lights in each structure are the same shade of blue, either teal, azure or Egyptian blue.
