Cactus column in construction


A massive freestanding cactus column, measuring the sum of the eight pillars of the atrium, rises to the air  from the centre of the 16th Century convent of St. John at Metepec. Within the column, water is contained in clay jars representing the Baptist and the nymphaea that people have seen in this rural area. A sound installation surrounds this organic architectural structure.
