PHOTOS: Art installation ‘Bit.Fall’ combines technology and engineering

Pacific Place is hosting a large public installation that displays googled buzzwords in real time as a curtain of water.

Bit.Fall, created by German multimedia artist Julius Popp, combines technology and engineering to create a curtain of individual water droplets that spells out popular words.

Connected to the internet in real time, an algorithm is used to look for popular buzzwords through different newsfeed channels. The words are only visible for a fraction of a second before they disappear.

Bit.Fall is part of Swire Properties’ arts programme.  

The programme kicked off with a cocktail party earlier this month, attended by a number of art aficionados.

Bit.Fall is on show until 6 April.
