The brilliant bit.fall by Julius Popp --which is currently featured at the Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition in the Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2008-- is a metaphor for the incessant flood of information we are exposed to. bit.fall artistically reveals internet-based information generated by a statistics algorithm via controlled drips of water that create a waterfall of words and images.

bit.fall features a horizontal module with computer-controlled valves hung from the ceiling. Water droplets are released at precise times to form predetermined shapes. The result is a word or message that seems to magically rain down from the ceiling and then disappear upon impact with the floor.
