this is a sign made of water. fibers given a special coating at the nano level completely
repel the drops of water, much like a lotus leaf. when the droplets of water exceed a
certain size, they roll away down the sloping surface under the influence of gravity.
the water drops well up to form letters on top of the sloped fabric, a new drop of water
grows up to take the place of each drop that rolls away, so the water logo is constantly renewed.
the water drops form tails as they roll away. these tails is a result of friction between
the water and the fabric.
