I love the ocean, which is one of the three reasons I love this project by David Bowen. The other two being that is technically awesome and absolutely mesmerising.
See, this grid that magically floats and morphs in mid air is at the National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland. But in reality, it’s showing a bit of the Pacific Ocean in real time. It reproduces the water at 49° 59 ‘7″ N 145° 5’ 20″ W using the intensity and frequency information sent by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy Station 46246.
Now, if I could find a way to transport myself to teleport myself from 40° 43′ 20″ N -73° 59′ 39″ W to 58° 26′ 16″ N 11° 18′ 15″ E, I would be very happy. Until then, I’d be a very unhappy mammal. [David Bowen via TT]
