Using technological wizardry, Julius Popp's Bitfall reproduces the flood of media information in the form of a real waterfall. Comprised of 128 nozzles, Popp's curtain collects a continuous stream of water droplets. Directing their flow with a complex system of magnetic valves controlled by computer, text and graphics randomly selected from the internet appear in the drizzling liquid, creating a DIYplasma screen. As each message drips into a collection tank, its feeds back into the cycle, creating a metaphor for the impermanence and flux of the perception of eality.
