Seperation

Carlos DeGroot
Separation

This work of art made me rethink how to approach it because it seems so unconventional. Basically it consists of several wooden frames and beds that move water from one place to the next. There is also elaborate tubing involved in the process, but the most interesting part is what is contained in the beds. Some have rocks, others fungus, and one section at the end is filled with plants. This retroactively turns the entire thing into a living work of art which with the pumps attached seems like it could maintain itself. This may be one of the most unique pieces of art that I’ve looked at all semester.
