"Fountain deals with elementals of essences: fire + water = blood. The time is both now, in the industrialized landscape of North America, and in another zone, a time of creation, myth and prophecy. The element of water is represented both as a body of water in the projection and literally as a wall of falling water. Water turns to blood. As befits our times we do not know whether this is a metaphor for creation or an apocalyptic vision." (11)
