ABOUT WET SHIELD
From the Fountains of Bellagio to the majestic Dubai Fountain; from the Olympic games in Salt Lake City to those in Sochi, Russia; from public parks in New York to board walks in Melbourne: My quest at WET is to connect people with the very joys of life, with the magic of water, and to connect each of us with our own inner joy at the wonders of the world.
With the Covid crisis, what better way for connection than to provide each of us with our own face shield from this danger. Our protective face covering is water-clear and allows each of us to see and rejoice in other’s smiles, their winks—and their simple presence.
We have brought the same passion, the same science, and the same technologies we used to create our fountain wonders to creating the WETShield. We created it first for the world’s front line workers. Now, we bring it to you, for you to enjoy in making your life not only safe, but also fun, festive, and fashionable.
WET, co-founded by Mark Fuller in 1983, is the world leader in water entertainment design and technology.
Writing for the New Yorker, John Seabrook described Mark Fuller as “the closest thing the world has to a fountain genius.” Mark’s WET team, he now insists, exceeds him in mastering the magic of water as the world’s most beloved element.
WET’s innovative team has created over 250 public installations, notably including The Fountains of Bellagio, The Dubai Fountain, the Revson Fountain at Lincoln Center, the Fountains of Wynn Palace in Macau, Aquanura in the Netherlands, and the Olympic Fountains in Salt Lake City and Sochi, Russia. The firm holds more than fifty patents and has pioneered most of what the public experiences today in water features, from pool-less plaza fountains to leaping laminars, from choreographed water performers to fountains of pure fire.
WET is comprised of a team of 200, who count among themselves musicians, mathematicians, machinists and mold makers, magicians, models and motion designers; physicists, pyro-technicians, pattern makers and product designers; conceptualists, choreographers, cinematographers; academy award winners, animators, architects, software architects and landscape architects; fluids engineers, optical engineers, mechanical engineers; painters, planners, pilots and photographers; dancers, divers and dogs (and just a few amazing accountants, analysts, and project managers).
