Conditional Reflections

Site: Public Pool, Stapleton Denver, CO

Artists: Jeanine Centuori, Russell Rock

Assistant: Yukie Hirashima

Architect: Semple Brown Associates

Client: Park Creek Metropolitan District

The temporal condition of water is represented here for this Bath House building site.  Three glass photographic panels depict its solid, liquid, and vapor states.  Each panel presents a close-up image of a “condition” of water.   Just as the seasonal use of the pool marks change, “Conditional Reflections” provides a meditation on the elusive nature of water.  Concrete cylindrical seats and pavers are arranged according to the molecular structure of each corresponding condition of water to create molecular plazas fronting each of the assembled images.
