Dripping water droplets function as a lens with a constantly shifting refractive index, projecting patterns of light on the floor and walls that change continuously. Thanks to the minute changes inside the water droplets, the same pattern never appears twice. In this work, the relationship between the main elements that comprise the universe — light, space, and time — are connected to each other through gravity and the surface tension of water. <D.W>

滴る水滴が、屈折率の変化し続けるレンズとなり、床や壁面に、連続的に変化する光の模様を描く。水滴内部の微細な変化により、二度と同じ模様が現れることはない。宇宙を構成する主要素である、光、空間、時間が、重力と水の表面張力によって繋げられる。
