Location: Millennium Park - Crown Fountain Chicago IL Photo Credit: Ethan Kent Contributed by Katharina Winzler Keywords: The fountain consists of two 50-foot glass block towers. They project video images from a broad social spectrum of Chicago citizens, a reference to the traditional use of gargoyles in fountains, where faces of mythological beings were sculpted with open mouths to allow water, a symbol of life, to flow out. Designer Plensa adapted this practice by having faces of Chicago citizens projected on LED screens and having water flow through a water outlet in the screen to give the illusion of water spouting from their mouths. The collection of faces, Plensa's tribute to Chicagoans, was taken from a cross-section of 1,000 residents.
