Drops of inspiration

Airport terminals can be soul-destroying places at the best of times, with little to distract you from the prospect of a long flight. If only more airports were like Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 1. (Thanks Lisa, Singapore).

The refurbished terminal boasts a new ‘kinetic sculpture’ called Kinetic Rain, consisting of 1,216 copper droplets that are programmed by a computer to create ephemeral shapes and other fantastic formations. During the 15-minute displays of shimmering choreography, the droplets form geometric shapes and even aircraft outlines as they glide through the air.
