The imagination of creative people has no limits. It has been proven once more by a strange flask-like sculpture that is situated in downtown Winnipeg, Canada. The sculpture that is titled Emptyful attracts lots of townsmen and tourists to the Millennium Library Plaza where it is installed. It’s over 34 ft high, weighs about 24 tons and is made of stainless steel, LED luminaires and water.
Emptyful looks like a huge flask with liquid which boils and changes the color. Sometimes a thick steam rises from this flask-like structure and changes its color as well. The changing of colors of the liquid and steam as well as the boiling of liquid that looks like a real chemical reaction attract lots of passers-by to this odd sculpture. In winter, the fog and water of Emptyful are turned off but a color-changing light scheme is still displayed.
Emptyful is an art project that has been created by a Canadian sculptor Bill Pechet together with a lighting designer Chris Pekar and Lumenpulse company. The last one has provided the sculpture with numerous RGB LED luminaires.
Emptyful that was a part of Winnipeg’s Public Art Program became a very expensive artwork, which costed $575 000. Currently, Emptyful sculpture is the main curiosity of Winnipeg that is visited by many tourists from around the world.
