This intervention at Rossignolet Waterfall, in woodlands in central France was created by architect Louis Sicard, Emile Yusta and Thorsten Fischer for the Horizons Sancy Festival 2014. The installation, called Le voile de la mariee (The Bridal Veil) uses a pine aquaduct perforated with holes every 1cm to intercept an existing cascade and create a 40m long curtain of water zigzaging through the trees. Visitors can walk through the watery screen or use a hand held wooden ‘shield’ to stay dry.

"Mystery of mysteries, water and air are right there before us in the sea. Every time I view the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing."
