“Aqueomorpha”: Water globules are sliding on an inclined surface. The surface is a soft transparent plastic film. The plastic film is placed on a glass plate surface and water is slowly flowing between the two surfaces. This flow continuously modifies the surface shape of the soft plastic film and consequently produces a continuous change of shape of the sliding water globules, which seem to behave like elementary living organisms.
A mechanical system, with electronic control, changes the inclination of the glass plate.
A projection lamp generates the image of the water globules on a screen.

Shown at the exhibition “Water”, Phaeno Science Museum, Germany, 2010-2011.

“FireWater”: Interactive system for the projection of two thin water streams flowing in opposite direction due to the manual change of the inclination of the wet glass plate.
The unit is placed against a white wall and projects on the wall the image of a water stream or the image of fire.
The viewer can modify the wave patterns of the water stream by changing the flow rate (turning a valve).
The height of the projection reaches 3 m in a dark room.

“Pro Tenda”: Interactive exhibit for the manual generation of water waves on a flexible mirror surface.
The water waves are projected on the ceiling, walls or a screen by means of a projection lamp.
Shown the first time as art installation in my exhibition “Water Dreams”, Venice, 1995.

“Wave Dream”: fully automated exhibit for the generation of water waves on a flexible mirror surface. Electronic control of each wave’s physical parameters.
The water waves are projected on the ceiling, walls or a screen by means of a projection lamp.
Museum Klimahaus Bremerhaven, Germany (White shell “Ozeanreise” by Kunstraum / Baginsky).

“MG/E- Contact” and “Filo Contact”. The first exhibit is an art work showing the contact between two water drops.
The second is an interactive exhibit, with a foot water pump, where the motion of a thin flexible hose sliding on a mirror generates water patterns which are projected on a screen.

“Pro River”: light projection of a very thin water stream flowing on a slightly inclined glass plate.
The water wave patterns are the result of the very low flow rate and of the small irregularities of the glass surface.

“Popolo del velo d’acqua”: interactive exhibit. By moving magnets with the hands, small iron elements are sliding on a water veil wetting a glass surface.
Light projection on a screen. The photos have been inverted for a better visualisation of the water patterns.
