Title: “Fountain.”

Year: 2017.

Artist: Boston Parks Department.

Materials: Various.

Description: Inspired by current events ranging from the lead crisis in Flint, Michigan to the bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef, this installation, which features bright orange traffic cones and yellow tape positioned around a common drinking fountain, calls attention to the absurdity that arises when water, essential to life, becomes—through humanity’s own actions—a danger to the very life it supports.
