The Water Carrier is a florescent installation piece by Frech artist Elise Morin. Aiming to fight water pollution, these captivating structures harness water and leak color into a Slovakian river.

The artist built her sculptural creations from 5,000 test tubes carrying fluorescein, a chemical that is used to trace pollutants in water ways. Displayed at Kosice, Slovakia's Biela Noc (White Night) art festival, the installation piece captivated viewers with its ethereal look.

After they were set up in an empty river way, the structures flooded the concave ground displaying illuminated rays that floated within the water and later disappeared. The remarkable Water Carrier by Elise Morin aims to showcase the unpredictable power of water and to make art that is both a visual and socially responsible statement.
