Most recently you may have heard the name of Czech artist David Cerny during the London Summer Olympics as he was the artist who created the London Double Decker “push-up” bus, Booster. Now take a look at his giant kinetic fountain in the shape of a head that spits water: Metalmorphosis by David Cerny
Since Booster (shown above) is a piece of Cerný’s of which I am not a fan, I thought I’d share with you something of his I do like. Metalmorphosis by David Cerný is an imposing kinetic installation of a giant head that spits water. Part sculpture, part fountain and wholly impossible to ignore, the piece is 30 feet tall and weighs 14 tons.
