< 't Lichte Festival, Katholieke Universiteit Brabant Tilburg, June 1990

A version of the Middelheim-project, reduced to 9 windscreen wipers, is placed in a pond, next to a statue by Joan Miro, on a terrace with a panoramic view of the city at the Fundacio Joan Miro in the Montjuic park, Barcelona. The paving stones of the terrace are covered with ‘Aigua Bellugada’: plastic deep freeze bags bought at the department store El Corte Inglés and filled with water reflecting the sunlight. Other versions of this project are the water pyramids constructed in the Gothic cellar of the Belfort of Aalst, and during the festival ‘t Lichte at the University of Tilburg, Holland.
