I tend to think that a creative person is a creative person, whatever the medium. Here’s something I did recently, in the medium of PVC pipe. Meet Son of Water Cage.
Here it is as its skeleton is beginning to come together. I built the original Water Cage a few years ago in Idaho, where I had the advantage of two hoses in the backyard… i.e., more water pressure. Here, with my single hose, I wanted to get a similar experience.
So the answer was less pipe. Water Cage had four pipes rising vertically, and I gave Son of Water Cage only two. It sways a bit in a strong breeze, but is stable (like a New York City skyscraper, ha!).
And here it is in action, upon the Famous Lawn. Holes drilled into the inward-facing sides of the pipe, irregular and pointing at different angles, fill the space inside with many little jets of water and leave space to run through.
