‘Tele-Present Water’

This installation by David Bowen draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy Station 46246 (49°59’7″ N 145°5’20″ W) on the Pacific Ocean. The wave intensity and frequency are scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure installed at the National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland. The result was a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant location.
