“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.
