(Video link HERE.) Japanese artist Toshihiko Shibuya has placed ‘water pallet’ floating on a square pool of water at the Sapporo Sculpture Garden, Painted with pinks, blues and greens on the underside of their base, the white circles glide on the surface of the basin, reflecting a colorful hue when they overlap.
What a lovely idea. Of course, we tried to figure out how we could do that (assuming we had a pool to begin with).

We inadvertently made a poem. We also came upon another artist who had water lilies in mind for a sculpture: Bruce Munro’s made “water lilies” from repurposed CDs.
They don’t have the quiet serenity of Shibuya’s water lilies, but fueled our imaginings further. What else could we float? Paper boats perhaps…
They inspired Claire Morgan’s artwork made of hundreds of them:
They are easy enought to make from a single sheet of paper…click here to see how.
