Art Meets Science At This Giant Seething Flask Sculpture

What looks like a mad scientist's oversized scheme to conquer the city of Winnipeg is actually a half million dollar sculpture created by artist Bill Pechet. Standing 35 feet tall, the Emptyful artpiece towers over the city's Millennium Library Plaza looking like a constantly brewing science experiment thanks to a colored fountain and misters creating a cloud of fog.

Since Winnipeg is often referred to as 'Winterpeg' by the rest of the country, the sculpture will only run during the Summer months when temperatures manage to climb above the freezing point. But all year round a display of embedded LEDs will illuminate the piece, including warm tones to help battle the frigid temperatures the city is known for.

It's just too bad the people of Winnipeg can't stand being outside long enough to check it out. It probably looks lovely from those surrounding windows, though.
