L'Eau et vous

Croisée de Saint-François

A water fountain interrupts the flow of traffic and the flow of our thoughts for a moment. The water erupts from the depths of the urban ground like a force of nature reclaiming its rights. Water in perpetual transit — like people in Saint-François, confined in underground tubes, constantly transported between treatment plant and place of consumption... By escaping from the pipes and its destination, the water expresses its short-lived freedom, fostering a new type of perception and opening our eyes. For a few seconds, in a brief moment of silence, we stare at the sky and everything around us becomes visible: the stretch of space and the possibilities that lie there.
