The simulation of the waterfall was created by calculating the movement of water as it was allowed to fall on a 3D model of an Audi R8 in a virtual computer environment. With the R8 like a rock, the waterfall simulation is projected onto a real R8 for this projection mapping art work.
The water is expressed as continuum of hundreds of thousand of water particles that flow in accordance with how the computer calculates the interaction of the particles.
Once an accurate water flow simulation has been constructed 0.1% of the water particles are selected and lines drawn in relation to them. The waterfall is expressed as the combination of these lines. Behind the lines exist thousands of water particles and the curve of the lines drawn depends on their overall interaction.
The waterfall video art work is created in 3D space and uses what we consider to be the logic structure of spatial recognition of our Japanese Ancestors.
