a drop, a wave

In the center of a 12 foot cube room sits a clear acrylic box atop a pedestal. Water drips from above into the container, setting off a chain reaction of concentric circle waves.

Water drips from the ceiling into the Plexiglas box below. Each drop of water disturbs the water inside the box, sending concentric ripples to the edges of the box. As the waves bounce off the walls of the box and return to the center of the box, they cancel out to calm. The movement of the water is projected onto the surrounding walls and the ceiling above.
