The installation “Digital Fountain” is a 24/7 video loop rear-projected into the windows of Comfort Station for the months of January and February. The digital fountain is made to be walked past, and generally lived around. It is always changing, so never the same when examined closely, but also constant and comforting, like running water. More than 100 waterfalls (each running about 5-10 minutes) make the transition between waterfalls unlikely to experience midstroll, it also guarantees a new waterfall on the return walk. Locals can live around the digital fountain for months and still find something fresh and new in its experience.
