Metalmorphosis by David Cerny Spews Water From Its Mouth

The art installation entitled Metalmorphosis by David Cerny exists on a very grand scale. This giant head is made out of horizontally sliced steel plate layers, each piece of which rotates at different intervals in order to create various patterns throughout the day. This is made possible through the use of motors that some speculate are controlled from the artist's very home.

Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, the art installation Metalmorphosis by David Cerny is quite impressive for these reasons alone. Yet the 30-foot, 14-ton steel sculpture also boasts another feature: it shoots water out of its mouth. This atypical fountain centerpiece will surely inspire other artists to rethink other traditional fountains in their surrounding areas, perhaps even endeavoring to revamp them as well.
