Fountain Fountain is a play on words, an investigation into form (the fountain as a monument) and colour (the split-fountain technique).
In a series of silkscreen prints, Design & Other deconstruct the wondrous elements of the fountain and reinterpret them as solid and liquid forms. Each print represents a new tier, gradients collide and ripple across the page, cascading upwards to the final spray.
Fountain Fountain was completed during D&O’s residency at Kapitaal, Utrecht (Netherlands). As part of their travels throughout Europe they are focused on undertaking projects to further understand the medium of silkscreen printing.
