creation - matrice liquide 3D
ST\LL by Shiro Takatani
for the 3D Water Matrix

Shiro Takatani is one of the first artists to create a work, ST\LL, for the 3D WATER MATRIX, premiered in April 2014 at the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie in Paris.

Composed of 900 electrovalves, each computer-controlled, the 3D WATER MATRIX is a medium or an interface for the making of liquid animated and tridimensional creations. The result is a "liquid" video display where drops replace pixels, with a very low resolution (30 by 30 pixels/drops) but one to which gravity imparts a "real" third dimension.
Thanks to this robotic machine, Shiro Takatani becomes a filmmaker, who creates animations using water drops defying gravity.
