Uma is the name of a child who frequents the Parc de la Villette in Paris. She balances afloat a pile of inflatable life-rings, a recurrent object in the artists' work. Her posture and the associated objets evoke the themes of Lucy + Jorge Orta's survey exhibition Food / Water / Life, which took place in the park's gallery from May to September 2014.
