Photographer's Note

Very often the artists when they have an good idea then they multiply it many times. I have seen already similar sculptures in some places, for instance at MIT in Boston. Probably this one is the biggest.
It is El Alma del Ebro (The Soul of Ebro) by Jaume Plensa, in the area of Zaragoza EXPO 2008 site. It is splendid place with interesting modern architecture. Unfortunately the most emblematic, Zaha Hadid's Bridge Pavilion looks abandoned, it is closed anyway.

El Alma del Ebro was created for the International Exposition in Zaragoza, the theme of which was "Water and Sustainable Development". It is eleven meters high, the sculpted letters representing cells of the human body which is over 60% water. Its white letters and hollow structure invite the viewer to look inside and reflect on the relationship between human beings and water.
