"Drip" is an interactive installation consisting of over-the-top hi-tech combined with an uttermost basic natural phenomenon: one single drip of water. Breaking out from the surrounding technical complexity, it was the bright little tension seeker that grabbed the attention of the audience with its simplicity, fragility and 'living at the edge' behavior.
Users of the installation could control the drip around by moving a mouse, increasing with each mouse click the weight/content of the drip, until it eventually fell down and disappeared in a water basin at the tip of the projected mouse pointer. Subtly interacting with the fragile drip triggered an emotional feeling for this tiny non-being, with its very short but sensational life.
