Art of the Week: WaterLife

I am participating in Art for the Earth at The Gardens at Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville again this year with a piece called Water:Life. Water:Life incorporates plastic water bottles with water and food coloring in a found metal trundle bed frame. It was installed yesterday as the first sculpture to appear for the 2011 show, which will officially open at the end of the month. (More sculptures will be coming between now and the end of the month.)

Here are some preview pictures of my piece before it is mulched in, which groundskeeping will do later this week sometime. (I plan to shoot more photos of it later on afterwards.) The colored water has a stained glass effect as seen in the detail.
