Situated on a plaza in the Miami Design District sits a new fountain by the artist Urs Fischer. Its backdrop is a re-creation of a Miami Beach bus stop with all its signage and advertisements missing. In its midst, on the bench, is a skeleton, lying on its back, inhabiting this artificial sphere of public space. A constant trickle of water lands on its head and forms a pool below. The skeleton figure is of no particular gender or age. It serves as a representation of anyone.
