Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle – Kinetic Rain

I’ve never been a fan of installation art, but this piece at Changi Airport Terminal 1 never fails to leave me enthralled.

It’s made up of hundreds if not thousands of suspended pink teardrops each individually controlled by it’s own motor in the ceiling. The teardrops rise and fall in intriguing patterns which ripple across the whole, sometimes resembling large shapes, and at other times appearing like random rain drops. It is really fascinating to watch. Do check out the video after you have tried to imagine the movement from the photos, you’d be amazed.

This is a post in response to the prompt in the Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

      1. Thank you, Mike!
        I do try to take my camera with me as much as I can – and on this occasion I went especially early to the airport in order to have time to look and take pictures.


  1. Changi airport is beautiful, isn’t it? I passed through there a lot en-route to Malaysia when I was living in Singapore as a kid. It’s a massive airport and seriously, you can spend a whole day there window-shopping and taking in the architecture. I also love how they incorporated ponds and nature all around the airport too – makes the airport all the more vibrant. I haven’t seen the teardrops before. They look amazing and what great shots, well done. Hopefully I get to experience Changi airport again sometime soon 🙂
