This work is based on the illustration The Pyramid of the Capitalist System by Nedeljkovich, Brashich & Kumarich from 1911. The Workers’ Fountain replaces the figures on the different levels of the capitalist pyramid with water. As usual with functional models, the focus here is primarily on a central principle, in this case it is the problem of distribution.
