Pfandbrunnen, Mauren, LI
The well used to be a location for trading, where people used to leave pledges. Connected to the water system of the nearby Austrian border, aquatic streams from three countries find together in that area. Once being an important object of economic value, its water was temporarily filled with egglike structures to remind of a more valuable source than money. To render homage to the precious ground water, the glowing spheres are moved by each small current of the well system and seem to be glowing in the dark even from far.
