A mechanical sculpture from Pe Lang, this machine arranges droplets of water on an omniphobic surface. Believe me, it looks much better than what it sounds.
“Falling objects – positioning systems from 2009-2011 is an custom made machine that adds drops of water onto a special textured surface. Each drop forms into an almost perfect sphere through the surface tension of the water and the omniphopic Material. The electronically controlled pipette wanders through a square grid of 21 x 21 drops to form a micro-matrix and returns to the beginning. After approximately 300 minutes, and when the water drops have evaporated, the same process starts again.”
