Untitled (1991), Michael Asher

Michael Asher’s, Untitled (1991), is located on the University of California, San Diego campus. It is a replica of a commercial drinking fountain found in office buildings and academic institutions. Asher’s piece describes context, a time and space. It reactivates the monument by forcing those who drink from it to face the its direction and look to the past. It situates itself within the changing environment of this space, a site of Marine training and now again a place of training.
