This hand-cart was pulled through the streets of Tucson dispensing water for thirsty participants and onlookers during the 2010 All Souls Procession. A public utility, it proved to be predictably functional for the many parched participants and spectators. Upon arrival for the decompression/after party it was designed to become a wine bar to celebrate and contemplate lost souls from the previous four seasons. The illuminated agave was a beacon during the procession to the finale stage.
