Ever felt that the sound of water dripping was slightly rhythmic and musical? If not you may want to reconsider after seeing the new installation at the 303 gallery in New York by American artist Doug Aitken.
The piece, called Sonic Fountain, is part of the gallery’s 100 Years exhibition and features five rods that drip water into a pool below. The dripping is not random; it is released at special intervals to create a variety of patterns and shapes, with the sound amplified by the location and the pool itself having been specially excavated out of the floor of the gallery.
The piece is quiet and tranquil with a milky white glow coming from the pool and a breath like rhythm from the water drops.
