In bit.fall digital information is analogized, producing words shaped by the water falling before the viewer's eyes. This information is only temporarily perceptible as an image just before dissolving into itself again. All that remains are the associations formed within the viewer's mind. bit.fall acts as a metaphor for the incessant flood of information about current world events we are exposed to everyday, and from which we draw our perpetually changing realities.

This sculptural information curtain emits individual drops of water through magnetic valves across a width of 8 meters. A computer program is employed to synchronize them, making it possible to freely determine the shape of the bitmap pattern formed by the drops as they fall to the ground. The input of the installation is formed by current buzzwords selected from various Internet news websites by a statistic-based computer program. The water is continuously sucked back into the construction by a pump, creating a closed circuit.
