be like water


This installation was initially approximately 25' tall x 120' long x 14' wide. Since its incarnation it has been installed in locations around the country. Robson reconfigures Be Like Water according to the architecture. When installed in its entirety, it is comprised of 80,000 plastic bottle caps and 9000 discarded plastic (PET) bottles.

Students at 7 public and private schools in Philadelphia assisted in collecting plastic bottle caps to use in the creation of this piece which was funded by the City of Philadelphia Dept. of Cultural Affairs, Skybox, Curator Eileen Tognini and other private donors.
