Not a caption, but the fountains at Chicago are very cool (no pun intended) There are two facing each other and the faces (you can see the mouth with the water coming out) are actually big projection screens and the faces change, and move and sometimes wink. We visited the School of the Art Institute of Chicago last summer with one of my daughters.

And thanks for the caption win for last week.

Austin Hilsmier, 3, from Chicago enjoys this interactive art exhibit titled, "That's Not Water".

This reminds me of the story ... Where the little boy stuck his finger in the dyke...!

Austin really wasn't sure what to make of his mom's Art-Deco shower remodelling.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at June 29, 2005 07:01 PM

The possibilities!

Only 5 so far? Okay, I'll give it a go.

Yeah, I think it must be a poor choice of a picture. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Mom wasn't kidding when she warned me about having that last glass of water before bedtime.
