Four in the Fountain

A group of University students pose in a very unique fountain set up each summer in front of the beautiful Italian Villa – Lenbach House. The building is now a modern art museum in Maxvorstadt, and the fountain is one of the many public service functions that pop up around town. What’s so unique about the fountain is that spray jets create a circle wall of water. As you approach the water wall, sensors on the outside and on the inside shut off that section of the fountain. The wall recedes, you walk in, and it comes back up to surround you. So it’s strange to see fully clothed (and dry) people playing in the center of the fountain. What’s even more amusing is to see people approach who don’t know there are sensors, and then try to time the water jets. This fab four, on the other hand, are seasoned pros.
