ARTWORK OF THE WEEK

Water Tower, 1998
Rachel Whiteread

Water Tower is a translucent resin cast of the interior of a 12 foot high by 9 foot wide wooden water tank. Sitting on top of a steel tower frame 7 stories high on a SoHo rooftop, Whiteread’s sculpture is situated between two functioning water tanks. The visual experience of the piece changes depending on the time of day and weather. On a cloudy day, the weathered surface of the original tank’s interior becomes visible, providing a ghostly form. In bright sunlight the translucent resin becomes a beacon of refracted light, and at night the unlit sculpture disappeared against the darkened sky.
