By way of the water flowing through the fountain, time is measured. The increasing and decreasing water gauges move floats, which in turn regulate the gauge heights and operate outlets, mechanisms and commutatorsThe fountain is experiencing constant change, of which the animation on the left gives a certain impression.
These transformations are accompanied by the burbling of water, again and again the shwooshing of water, the clicking, creaking and jarring of the mechanism (this background noise is not included in the animation).

This way, a constant amount of water flows through the
