The Urban Art of John Felice Ceprano

Every year, parts of the Ottawa River become so low that its bottom is revealed. Ceprano has taken advantage of that fact to give way to his imagination. He says that the "sculptures are free-standing, unattached and temporal, dismantled by nature each winter season." Each winter, the ice topples them. As soon as the water level is low enough, Ceprano rebuilds them, looking totally different one year from the next.
