The Representation of Patriotism and Militarism in the Drinking Fountain

To be honest, when the first time I saw the drinking fountain, my mind just jumped up a question “Why there is a water fountain located in the middle of the road?” At least for me, it does not make sense at all; even it is convinced people who can drink water when they are thirsty. Besides, if professor did not give out this assignment, I believe that there have a bunch of students who even do not know the existence of this drinking fountain. However, after discovering the environment and the history of the drinking fountain, and connected it to the come concept of gaze believe that the drinking fountain is represented the patriotism of a citizen. Primarily, the drinking fountain is placed on a grass area in front of the Price Center that is opposite of the triton fountain under the tree. After doing research, knowing the location of the drinking fountain is used to be a place called “Marine Corps Rifle Range Camp Matthews”, which simplify as “Camp Matthews”. The grass area is a place of monument in memory of Camp Matthew. After doing research, knowing the location of the drinking fountain is used to be a place called “Marine Corps Rifle Range Camp Matthews”, which simplify as “Camp Matthews”. It is the historic center of this whole territory account Matthews was military base before it was handed off to the University of California and scripts institution.

According to my own experience, when I came out from the Price Center, the front of Gilman Drive, and went down stairs, the first thing I saw was the Triton Sculpture. Following, in some distance, a green landscape was attracted my attention. Lofty trees are in that green area, become the shelters from the sun. Then, I saw a deep color sculpture, which is pretty outstanding in that landscape because the strong contrasts between the colors. By approaching it, I found out it is a drinking fountain which is make of granite, likely that the it is around 130 meters high. The

drinking fountain is in the middle of the road in the square in stead of up against the wall, I can see the edge and the filter clearly that it is normally would be up against the wall. The metal tap is on the right corner of the surface when I faced to the Gilman drive. At one of the sides of the drinking fountain where existing a black bottom which is the switch, but it took me some time to observe it. When I tried to drink, I used one hand to push the bottom, and stopped down. By touching the drinking fountain, I felt cool from my hand, and also the water was cool too. Look across the drinking fountain, I saw a base which is in the middle of the square and a flagstaff on the base, that was the American flag fluttered in the breeze. Walked through the flagstaff, tin a nearby has a stone stands in front of me that is a monument of Camp Matthew. If you draw a line to connect these three objects, you will find out that they are parallelized.

What a drinking fountain does, provide water to the thirsty people, its functional. However, as a sculpture of art, it’s function as representation. The connotation that is a sculpture of ore image of drinking fountain, a very institutional one, more and more serve historical of it’s own right. The history of drinking fountain points to a representation of patriotism. When I need to drink, I have to make a bow because the drinking fountain only has around 130 centimeters high, which is exactly like make an honor of the flag. National flag is represent a whole country and people who are living in. As a citizen of Untied States, the designer of the drinking fountain, Michael Asher, in order to show his patriotism and militarism to his country, he puta drinking fountain in front of the flag because he want students, professor or others could remember being patriotic as importance as drinking water. People need water everyday otherwise we will die. In the same way, if some one does not be loyal, love his country, he as death people. Moreover, the

university is a place whereeducate people that want people could use what they learn to make the contribution of their country. Michael Asher attached an important denotation to the drinking

fountain; also let it become a part of art collection.

As what I learned, I am aware of that the gaze have two meanings, for instance, one is the gaze from me, I look at the drinking fountain. Further, the second meaning is the drinking fountain is situating in the field of the gaze, and this particular field of gaze, which is in grass area and it is a small Memorial Square. The drinking fountain is in the field of gaze that amount to the Square that hundred of people like students, staff, or professes will go through, or sitting around it every single day. There are several tables and chairs place around Square, but basically I want to say is around the drinking fountain, or the flag behind the drinking fountain. The drinking fountain is unpiled the position of critical importance in the particular filed of gaze. I noticed that each person has an uninstructed view of the drinking fountain before thinking about what is it. However, when I talk about what I know about the drinking fountain to my experience of the placement by standing in this place, and I understand the drinking fountain in this field of the gaze is organized to optimize the individual looks or gazes of each of

everyone who might across the grass area. And the drinking fountain is position in this field of gaze as the object of the look as place where you were invited to look. And there is the other place you are invited to look; there is the flag behind the drink fountain, so that anyone standing behind it would also be fully on view even as the gazes or the looks of the standing people on the road would be looking on the flag.

Everything in the world has power, even this drinking fountain that it does have power.

When you feel thirsty and it holds water, as so you will be draw to it. As same as the gaze, if the gaze is an object, it haspower too. Thinking about the power of the gaze as a network struction, power is created through interrelationship, its not something else held by the object. The drinking fountain as the object in the filed of gaze that construct the relationships of power, the drinking fountain is situated in relationship to the a public square which is design by to fixed the gaze of hundred student and professor looks. And therefore, is not the but the drinking fountain is powerful, but the drinking fountain exists in the network in which the objects of the square, design of the location of the drinking fountain, the flag and the stone which is being fix to be paralyzed in that particular position. And Square, allow the drinking fountain command the point of view form me, staff, or professors. So that, drinking fountain designed to organize the power in such of way that we may to look at it, or the flag and the stone behind it. We can not move the drinking fountain away, and everything around it are not fixed randomly.

The knowledge of the drinking fountain that influent how I look or gaze of it. In others words, the background information of the drinking fountain influent how I identify it. If I did not know the area was a military base, when I gaze the drinking fountain, I will identify it is just a normal, useful thing for relieving our feeling of thirsty. Nevertheless, when I came back there after researching, I spent triple time on looking and touching the drinking fountain. I realized that it was not just a drinking fountain. It is a representational of patriotism and militarism by figuring the relationship between the gaze and the drinking fountain,
