Around the time when I built the Splash Screen I was obsessed with how watery surfaces transform images. Restless movement, transparency, glow and wetness adds to the image something tangible yet ethereal. While studying my second semester at Kolding School of Design I had a chance to construct a prototype which was since exhibited a number of times in Denmark.

The clunky industrial look of the Splash Screen was made to resemble a holographic display from a former future. The body was build almost entirely from scrap aluminium. Fokdal Springvand provided valuable know-how on how to design a perfect water curtain.
