“Tele-Present Water”, an installation by David Bowen.

Tele-Present Water by artist David Bowen

Watch the video below!

This installation re-creates a wave by drawing real-time information from a buoy on the Pacific Ocean. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure installed at The National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland.

    I agree with Erik Quick. Makezine recently did a short video that made me fall in love with Reuben. He’s such a humble genius. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dehXioMIKg0&feature=player_embedded
