Submission + - World's largest kinetic art sculpture = computer controlled copper raindrops (stylesight.com)

drkim writes: "Kinetic Rain" the world's largest kinetic art sculpture is an array of 1216 copper coated aluminum 'droplets' which are individually motorized on wires, and their animation controlled by computer.

It can be seen at the Singapore airport and is the length of four checkout counters.

You can see a "making of" and demo here:

(which is lovely, but warning: sappy elevator music!)

It was designed by Art+Com of Berlin.
