REFERENCE, bit.fall by Julius Popp on the South Bank, London

Julius Popp (born 1973) is an artist based in Leipzig.

Popp was born in Nuremberg. His work often uses technology,[1] resulting in interdisciplinary ventures which reach across the boundaries of art and science.[2] An example of Popp’s work is Bitfall (2005):[3] a machine which displays words selected from the internet via drops of falling water in precise configuration, each word visible only for a second.[4] A bit.fallinstallation was at the London 2012 Olympic Park under the footbridge between the main entrance and stadium, the words generated using water from the Waterworks River were chosen at random from internet news feeds.[5]

Popp studied at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig and he won the Robot Choice Award in 2003.[6] The Fraunhofer Institute, Bonn, and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT have both studied elements of Popp’s work which made unique advances in the field of artificial intelligence.[2]
