Soothing Audiovisual Installation of Waterfalls

Berlin-based Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa creates a unique audiovisual experience of standing in a waterfall indoors with his installation titled Octfalls. By placing eight suspended panels, each featuring an HD video of water refreshingly cascading down a cliff, and accompanying them with the relaxing sounds of water streaming across rocks, Kurokawa simulates an immersive experience that is “one of a thousand ways to defeat entropy.”

Inspired by Kurokawa's soothing and engaging installation, photo manipulator Lachlan Burrows, better known as Lockie, created a silent version of the soothing sight. Lockie took the installation artist's piece and reconfigured one of the displays as a motion graphic of a different waterfall, exemplifying Octfalls' visual appeal. Be sure to check out a video of Kurokawa's installation, below, where the images are complemented by the relaxing and invigorating sounds of a waterfall.
