Berlin firm ART+COM has recently completed this art installation for the departure hall of Terminal 1 at Changi Airport, Singapore. Thin steel wires and lightweight aluminum covered with copper were used to create the 608 rain droplets. Suspended from thin steel ropes above the two opposing escalators, each droplet is moved precisely and seemingly floating by a computer-controlled motor hidden in the halls ceiling. The drops follow a 15-minute, computationally designed choreography where the two parts move together in unison, sometimes mirroring, sometimes complementing, and sometimes responding to each other.
