The interface “Bit.fall” is constructed by the German designer Julius Popp whom I think did a great job in terms of giving the audience visual feast as well as implementing his artwok a substantial meaning. The interface is formed by a horizontal module with computer controlled valves hung from the ceiling and this module creates rain droplets which are released at precise times and frequencies in order to create words one by one to form a powerful imagery. This imagery supplies the meaning that’s aimed to be given as well.
As Popp states, his creation tries to remind the audience to think about the unnecessary information that has been disturbing their mind which he metaphorically depicts this point of view with the aspect of “flood”.
The illustration above indicates that a highly symmetrical and “devoted” mechanism is constructed in order to provide an accurate outcome from the interface. The construction itself is a big deal, and then the whole design is great. Like a saying; ‘Mission Accomplished’. Moreover, the metaphorical depiction of high frequency information that is not been able to be obstructed by human beings, becomes a powerful imagery. To admit, Popp’s visualisation is a good tool as a reminder for the unavoidable reality which makes the audience think about the incomes and outcomes of it.
When I read about the “Bit.fall” , although I am not able to see the actual interface, I was impressed by the design, and the idea it carries. Nowadays, I am so overwhelmed by the information flood which is gradually increased and creates an immense environment around me just like a living object. The worse part is that, sometimes you do not understand the exhaustion that this “flood” causes, and you keep on trying to have them all. Yes we are all created insatiable; however, I bet no one denies that millions of details and revealed facts make us learn more and more, make us curious, make as wanderers.
What if we focus on particular informations and try to overcome with those? Is this possible? I dont think so. We are diverted into so many things, and now less is not enough.
