Fake Fountain

The fake fountain is an indoor fountain with water circulation and electronic control of the illumination (stroboscopic and halogen).
It is made out of a transparent plexiglass tube (hight 2,30 m; diameter 20 cm) inside of which a vertical water jet is variously illuminated.
As you may see in the pictures and better in the videos, lighting the jet with a strobe from the top one gets the impression to look at instant photos of the drops.
The technology of the fountain can be found in the lower part of the tube and is lighted at controllable time intervals:
Pump, transformer, valve, electronics may be explored; the circuits, the provenance of the materials, the construction principles can be recognized. The bottom is in raw concrete with holes for an adequate ventilation.
