watertowerIvan Navarro:  This Land Is Your Land
Madison Square Park Conservancy Madison Square Art:  February 20 – April 20, 2014.
“I like the idea of a reservoir of water.  This simple and timeless wooden structure contains water – the most primitive and elemental resource, the essence of human sustenance, and a reminder of the basic condition that all humanity shares.  We must guarantee our water in order to survive.  In that sense the water tanks are containers of primordial knowledge.  Their form and material are equally archaic:  they are simple circular huts with conical roofs, made of wood.”  Ivan Navarro
