Newsdrip is a kinetic, networked, water-based installation. The maps are drawn onto the floor of an enclosed space and submerged beneath pools of shallow water. Droplets fall from the ceiling onto the surface of the water to illustrate points of immediate geographical and political significance. The rate of dripping varies with the frequency of the occurrence of recognised nouns, resulting in a rippling and disturbance of the surface of the water. The outcome is a highly aesthetic, physical form of graphing: a representation of the culturally significant with a visual, temporal and acoustic richness.
