"I didn’t want just random drips. I wanted something that you could dance to. Something kind of choreographed-sounding. So I ended up making this…I guess it’s sort of a drumming machine."
—Tim Hawkinson describing his work, Drip (2002)

Happy Pi Day! Have a slice of Tim Hawkinson’s Drip (2002), the artist’s “drumming machine” installation that includes water rhythmically dripping into buckets covered with pie tins which, as the artist describes in Art21’s “Time” episode, “create sort of a resonator—really give it a nice loud drip.”
