Item description for Jaume Plensa by Carsten Ahrens Jaume Plensa...
Jauma Plensa is one of the most important Spanish artists of our time. For twenty-five years he has exhibited internationally and created numerous public projects, including the spectacular Crown Fountain for Millennium Park, Chicago. Realized between 2000 and 2004 with the support of the Crown family, the fountain is a unique installation renown the world over. Featuring water cascading down two monumental glass-brick towers, a skin pool, and the twin water spouts, the fountain is also a video archive of the faces of one thousand Chicagoans from all segments of society, displayed in a constantly changing pageant on the fifty-foot-high LED screens. The development of the Crown Fountain is evocatively captured in words and photographs in this monograph, along with an extensive chronology of Plensa's multifaceted oeuvre.
