The machine then traces those subtle patterns, amplifying and solidifying them until generative patterns emerge autonomously. The installation uses an Arduino Uno, an AdaFruit […]

“Tele-Present Water” Waves From Faraway

Hypnotic installation from David Bowen representing *real* waves. […] Tele-Present Water installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data buoy station 46075 Shumagin Islands Alaska. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred […]

The diorama becomes a physical representation of tour friends’ behaviours. If you’re a both nature lover and a geek, you would certainly love the Yahoo Farm. The […]
