Cooling down

This water sculpture by Danish artist Jeppe Hein is making a splash on the South Bank this summer, inviting visitors to join in and become part of it. Walls of water rise and fall randomly to divide the 10m? space into a series of smaller 'rooms': changing every ten seconds, they define all possible right-angled configurations of the space. As viewers walk through the 'rooms' they must interact with the patterns of rising and falling water if they are to leave the space without getting wet. Max got really wet!
