Details on the Art
By Walter Productions
On display November 8–17
Water Serpent is a nearly 200-foot-long, floating sculpture that shoots out fire along its metallic spine and spits sparks from its mouth. Like Floatus—Walter Productions’ installation from last year’s Canal Convergence—Water Serpent will produce nightly fire shows choreographed to music. A contrast of fire and water will play out as Water Serpent shoots flames into the sky, reflecting not only on the sculpture’s metallic surface but also on the water of the Arizona Canal. In conjunction with Canal Convergence’s focus on sustainability, portions of the serpent’s skin are made from upcycled metal cans.
