The Waterfall on Saga Castle

teamLab, 2013, Digital Installation, 3min, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

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 artwork is created in 3D space and uses what we consider to be the logic structure of spatial recognition of our Japanese Ancestors.

This artwork is five times the resolution of FHD (Full high Definition). The high resolution allows for the extreme detail of the work.
