Falling Water Interactive Installations by Naai-Jung Shih

Home > Winners > #63770


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Falling Water

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Interactive Installations

INSPIRATION:
The water drops represent the wishes people make every day. Wishes should be chained just like the water drops in a waterfall. A careful observation of a waterfall can find out that each branch of wall behaviors slightly different from each other. The dynamic essence of a waterfall can be illustrated and preserved if people can target a branch and make it running in different locations.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The combination of cubes and beaded stream present a contrast of static object and dynamic flow. The interaction between them creates a visual effect associated with sounds. The whole setting can be pulled to see beads running or just put on a table as a scene of frozen water.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
People can grip a cube by hand or put it on a holder to watch a beaded stream running by rotating the knob or pulling by hand. Each cube or set of cubes comes with a beaded stream that travels inside the cube or through the recessed notches on different surface. The beaded stream can be rerouted along different notches. This installation purposely selects shinning silver or metallic golden beads to create contrast with the cube finishes and materials. Cubes can be placed side by side or in an order that mimic a complicated water stages.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started in September 2016 in Taipei Taiwan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The cubes were made by a 3D printer. Each part of cube has to be smooth enough to ensure a smooth flow. A research was conducted in parametrically creating the cube with holes that enable a smooth flow of beaded stream. The 3D mathematic program k3dsurf was used to create the original shape which was a 3D model with no thickness. This model was thickened and smoothened using another 3D program Geomagic Studio.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The installations come in different sizes varying from 36 cm(width) x 34 cm(height) x 30 cm(depth) to 8 cm(width) x 8 cm(height) x 8 cm(depth).

TAGS:
interaction, dynamic art, metaphor, rapid-prototyping, parametric 3D modeling

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A research was made to find out which mathematical program can create the desirable model. The final choice was k3dsurf and Geomagic Studio.

CHALLENGE:
To put a scene or a metaphor into a physical model was a challenge in the beginning. To make a perfect order of the cubes was another in creating depth and hierarchy of the metaphor as wishes. The path must be running smoothly before or after routing in different ways. The size of beads has to be selected carefully. Purchasing beads and putting a string through simply did not work because beads would stick together and would not run. Distance between two beads has to be maintained constantly. A variety of colors and textures were tested.
