Datafountain: Money translated to water

Van Mensvoort
June 19th 2006

"In the morning paper, I can read the weather report as well as the stock quotes. But when I look out of my window I only get a weather update and no stock exchange info. Could someone please fix this bug in my environmental system? Thanks."

The datafountain is connected to money currency rates on the internet. Refreshed every five seconds. The mobile fountain measures 5x4x3 meters. The relation between money and water is evident. The currency rates of the Yen, Euro and Dollar (¥€$) are displayed on the fountain; their interdependence is visible in water.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
