“Emptyful” is a 35 foot tall glowing flask sculpture at Millenium Library Plaza in Winnipeg, Canada. Color changing LEDs light fog and falling water in the sculpture to give the illusion that it is full of boiling liquid. The sculpture was designed by Vancouver, BC artist Bill Pechet.

emptyful is inspired by the idea that Winnipeg, (and the prairies which surround it) is full of emptiness…a boundless space where various phenomena such as weather, light, seasons and human endeavour come and go. The recognizable shape implies containment, but the open construction allows for the opposite: light, wind, rain and snow flow through easily.
