Solar-powered fountain commisioned by the National Design Museum of the Smithsonian Institution at the Copper-Hewitt as part of the exhibit, Under the Sun: an Exhibition of Light New York City: June 21-Nov. 1998, Washington, DC: June 21-Sept. 1999

White "LEDs", light-emitting diodes, are reflected in the fountain spray for dramatic night time viewing. Low voltage lights are energy efficient and require minimal maintance.

Energy from sun runs a hidden pump to recycle the water from the basin, through the stem, and over the solar panels. Curved photovoltaic panels are integrated into a stainless steel shroud with an organic form appropriate to a garden setting.
