    Link: Bitfall: Creating Text With Falling Water - Art meets technology. Computers release water which create perfect text.

    Pretty epic, although there is no deep and mysterious meaning, it`s only falling water.

    "I believe that I examine the haziness of the personhood with my work."


    See, it`s comments like that that make the art world a land of BSing.

    It`s a cool machine though.

    I like his philosophy, but yeah; seems a little esoteric about the actual function of the machine. Seems more like a symbol to him (as mentioned), a pet-project of sorts.

    That is soooo super awesome. But I couldn`t help thinking that this is the kinda thing Ozymandias from Watchmen would appreciate. If he wanted a break from watching a bunch of TV screens to help him figure out the current cultural state of mind, he could watch a waterfall of the most-used words in the internet....

    Or am I just too pumped for the Watchmen movie, so I think of nothing else? :P

    Pretty cool, but do you think we could actually have included a little bit of footage of the machine working in the story, you know, like for 5 seconds, rather than 4 milliseconds from 70° to the side at a 30° angle? Pretty poor editing there.

    Very cool. Synchronized water text. Brings a whole new playground of possibilities to those attractions we see with laser light and fountain shows. The Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada for example.

    It`s just water forming letters... what`s so artsy about that?

    That guy is full of himself. If at least he would have created half of those tools required for it`s exposition. All he did is plug a bunch of hoses and program the tap so they release water at the desired time.

    Big deal.

    Chieffy, because somebody gets their nick from a popular song doesn`t mean they have to speak the language. Although it would help to know what it means, because the person might have "Tuez vos enfants" if they didn`t... I really hope that`s not a song.

    hmm...

    Amazing piece of work, but artists really are full of nonsense. Especially the fact that its picking words from the internet. It is as likely to pick out n00b, lol, rofl and countless pornographic words as anything profound

    They might want to color the water somehow, to make it easier to see.

    (Good idea Wattstone. XD )

    To everyone saying this isn`t that cool or he`s full of it:
    Let me see you do what he did.
    This is really cool, and it`s his way of making art.
    I like it.
    :]
    And I liked his explanation.

    d3xy: He took an already existing technology (though still relatively new), and applied a poor concept.

    Of course the work he did was interesting and required nontrivial technical knowledge. But the only reason it is interesting is because of the technical aspects. The Jeep waterfall is just as interesting, but it makes no claim to be art.

    So in the end, he was successful as a craftsman but failed as an artist.
