Water curtain display
An sensory experiment with water and projected imagery.
Splash Screen is an experimental display enabled by projecting light onto a falling curtain of water. During its active period it was exhibited at various venues in Denmark with video by different contributing artists including the author. The industrial look was designed to resemble a holographic display from a former future putting into question the possible function and underlying technology of the artefact.
The motivation to construct the device came from a desire to add sensory qualities to virtual imagery. Visual qualities like transparency, translucency, refraction, reflection, turbulence, and tactile qualities like wetness and weight invoked curiosity among the audiences and many would engage with the image by blowing, putting their hands into it, or even attempting to drink it.
