Universe of water particles on the Grand Palais in Paris


The waterfall, projected on the facade of the Grand Palais in Paris

For the Art Paris Art Fair 2015, Teamlab have transformed Paris’ historic Grand Palais into an immersive, ever-evolving waterfall. The projection-mapped simulation has been calculated by tracking the movement of water falling on a 3D model of the structure in a virtual computer environment. ‘Universe of water particles on the Grand Palais’ is expressed as continuum of hundreds of thousand of droplets that flow in accordance with how the computer calculates the interaction of the particles.The concept derives from traditional Japanese painting of oceans, rivers and bodies of water, expressed as a curvilinear series of lines.
