We’re all for taking time over creative projects, but Ariane Prin has to be congratulated for taking slow production to a whole new level. Inspired by public fountains around Polish cities, Ariane’s Water Cups Fountain is a generative kinetic sculpture that disperses ceramic over plaster moulds, slowly layering up a spontaneous structure as it spins. The results are certainly eye-catching, but it’s the process that excites us the most; the sheer technical ingenuity behind such a simple creation.
