'Fountain' was an unofficial intervention in Pill Creek in Cornwall. It is a location that is linked to the painter Ben Nicholson who stayed here in the 1920s.

The water fountain was in situ for more than 4 hours, and, linked directly to mains water, the height it achieved was determined by how many residents living in the area were simultaneously running their taps or appliances.

At several points it reached over 60ft in height.
