La Joute ("the joust") (1969) is a public sculptural installation by Quebec artist Jean-Paul Riopelle. The fountain operates on a kinetic sequence that takes about 32 minutes to complete. On the hour, it shoots up jets of natural gas through the water; producing a dramatic ring of flame which lasts for about seven minutes. The mist sequence, without the fire in the fountain, occurs every hour throughout the day.
