The proposed project is based on the idea of constructing a kind of allegorical fountain that will offer spectacle, coolness and will recall memories and audiovisual enjoyment, as through the dynamic launch the spectacular water droplets will create impressive formations on the surface of the water. A man- made natural phenomenon that will provide the viewer with the feeling of a momentary rise, and through the refraction of light the image of the rainbow. The work activates and shapes with very simple industrial means a sudden encounter with the elements of nature and offers a spectacular experience for the spectator and the passerby of the lake’s Pamvotida coastal zone in the city of Ioannina.
