Feel like taking a quick 16-ounce shower after your turn sweating or just watching the action at the Jamail Skatepark? It looks like Matthew Geller’s pipe sculpture at the Sabine Water Pump Station in Buffalo Bayou Park — counterintuitively named Open Channel Flow —
is now will soon be open for pumping.
Here’s architect Joe Meppelink of Metalab and family taking a ceremonial first spritz over the weekend:
Update, 8/26: A commenter notes that the sculpture won’t open to the public for another month: “Joe and family were there for a photo op. The dedication is scheduled for 4-6 PM on September 25th. Hope to see you there.”
