Zeitskulptur X

May 11, 2003 - May 2004

Artist: Peter Sommer (Bielefeld)

Zeitskulptur X (translates into "temporary sculpture" but could also be interpreted as "sculpture of time") comprises the works Wasserreservoir ("water reservoir") and Schalenweg ("way of bowls"). It will be on display in front of the ZiF until May 2004:

The 21 terracotta bowls are filled to different levels with water at the beginning. They are intended to collect everything nature and humans accord to them over the course of one year.
The funnel is filled to the brim with water. The water level will constantly change over time due to evaporation and rain, a process that is going to be documented on the panes by water marks. Icing can be observed in winter, the ice might even break the glass.
