Tinguely Fountain in a sunny winter day
Probably some of the most iconic art pieces in Basel are the ones created by Jean Tinguely, a Swiss artist famous for his sculptural machines. You can find samples of his work in the Tinguely museum (hosts a permanent exhibition), in the Euroairport and in this fountain located where the old city theater was once located. The artist setup these nine iron pieces in constant movement, interacting with each other. Today at lunch time I was walking in the city center and I was able to capture a nice backlight shot that demonstrates the sculptures in action splashing water.
