Julius Popp

Posted by tb4





Julius Popp
(German, b.1973)

Popp uses controlled drips of water to create a waterfall of words and images. A horizontal module with computer-controlled valves hung from the ceiling releases droplets at precise times to form predetermined shapes. The result is a word of message that seems to magically rain down from the ceiling and then disappear upon impact with the floor. Popp describes bit.fall as a "metaphor for the incessant flood of information we are exposed to."

@Werbeschlampe, I don't know but both are pretty sweet.

What a complete waste of the technology. Jeep made it alot more spectacular with images, rather than just scrolling words in some boring font
POS 'art' trying to cash off innovative technology and 'world events'. so cliched and stupid.

@anon, You are an idiot. How would he be stealing from Notcot when their link takes you directly to this page, which had to exist before the link could be created? Or vice versa, how would Notcot be stealing from him when their link obviously takes you directly to his own page?

this who-has-stolen-from-whom-discussion is ridiculous... (are you serious?!) i won't leave a comment on this.
in my opinion bit.fall is a pretty cool piece of art but also kind of data visualizing.
