Map out the surface tension

While the raindrop falls into the still surface, one, two, three, and more. It breaks the even water surface and creates ripples. Intrigued by this dynamic, I study how the water surface acts as a continuous web system and how surface tension reacts to changes in this project.

I used cotton thread to quickly prototype the web system.

Inspired by the dynamic of the water surface, I finally come up with a floating research lab located at the riverfront of New Orleans.
