Now On: Julius Popp: Bit.Fall Exhibition, Ludwig Museum
On display until 31 July. The exhibition is realised in the frame of Dunapest Festival, a regional art event organised for the first time, presenting the rich and variegated cultural life of cities laying along the Danube. A special focus will be on the connection between the city and the river.

"The speed at which information is sourced, exchanged and updated in our modern society makes it almost inconceivable and even more ephemeral than ever before.

The work BIT.FALL translates this abstract process into an experience for the senses and is a metaphor for the present currents of information.

In BIT.FALL information is represented by words which are generated by a software based on a statistic algorithm.

In a split second, BIT.FALL releases hundreds of drops in determined intervals, which create a ‘waterfall’ of words. Each drop of water thus becomes a liquid and transient ‘pixel’ or ‘bit’, the smallest unit of information."

Venue: Ludwig Museum
Address: 1095 Budapest, Komor Marcell utca 1.
