A metal totem, standing, vertical, made of 8 shipping containers, towers against the city skyline from its 19 metre height, a seismic measuring device for society, a stallion with nerves of steel, of random, mysterious contents. Infinitely large, infinitely tender, multi-formed, gut-rumbling, it keeps watching. Warning us all against global packaging, against the uniform pixilation of our nightmares, against the taming of our ghosts. A beacon in the universal storm, and a spokes-person for the voiceless. Waterlitz is a unique creation, calling us to gaze upwards, to resist, to unblock the ways out, stressing the urgency… Waterlitz explores through a virtual lens the preoccupations of our time, the devastating effects of globalisation, and the melt-down of wonder. But the human spirit cannot be contained. The disappearance of the human species will not take place. Let’s break the ice!
