Then at a deadly pace / It Came From Outer Space /And this is how the message ran...

The Fountain Stravinski, adjacent to both the Pompidou Centre and IRCAM, is full of mechanical fountains/sculptures*, each of which represents one of Stravinsky's scores. I don't recall him doing Rocky Horror Picture Show, but there you go... Actually the above is a representation of L'Amour (les Lèvres) . Compare to the picture below L'adoration de la pleine poche de biscuits.

* From today's lessons: the 'p' in sculpture or sculpteur is silent. However if you are a female sculpteur (e.g. Camille Claudel) then the 'p' in sculptrice is pronounced. Posted by Picasa
