Water Ripples

I collaborated with Hypersonic on the fabrication of Water Ripples. This kinetic sculpture was installed in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal for the week of World Water Day 2018.

For World Water Day 2018, Hypersonic was invited to make a sculpture to act as a centerpiece for donation efforts at a collaborative fundraising event sponsored by Water.org and Stella Artois.

 Water Ripples is a sculpture designed to celebrate the beauty and power of water, surrounding visitors in waves in response to donations made to the water access charity.

 Water Ripples is composed of nearly 600 handmade water droplets, controlled by custom-designed motorized winches.

 Custom printed circuit boards and software allow the elements, controlled individually, to animate through infinite sculptural forms, creating impressions of waves and underwater life around visitors.

 The sculpture moves smoothly through algorithmically generated ambient waveforms, descending to surround visitors with a variety of water-inspired forms when an event visitor contributes a donation.
