Drop

Drop is a work by Germaine Kruip.

Drop is an optical device that enlarges and projects the image of a falling drop of water in motion. The installation is inspired by Kruip’s research on the work of Harold Edgerton, a scientist best known for his role in developing strobe lighting and its use in capturing imperceptible moments on film, such as a bullet piercing an apple. In Drop, the projector doubles as a camera to make the individual, “live” moments of falling water visible to the human eye. Though it actually produces 60 images of drops per second, the illusion is that of a single, floating drop.
