# Motivation

I had a spark of motivation after seeing this tweet:

I wanted to create a visualization of what yarn install does to your filesystem but make it looks like files are falling down from Changi Jewel’s Rain Vortex (instead of water).

The end result is a 3D recreation of the Jewel using THREE.js where filenames dropping down from the top whenever a file is created on the file system.
