15,000 custom-made glass droppers are suspended from overhead boards hanging from the ceiling. The viewer can experience a feeling of tension and sensitivity below this mass of fluid. The mass of fluid is made up of the many small individual drops of the droppers, but as a whole, looks like a pool upon which the light reflects. It is the opposite of reality.
