Included in the recently opened "Open Space 2011" show at the ICC gallery is David Bowen's "Tele-present water," a robotic work that conveys the actual flow of waves in lakes and oceans. A overhead pulley system that suspends a moving mesh recreates the g-forces and acceleration of wave patterns. The work is like a giant marionette portraying water.
Depending on the actual weather at the sensor location, the grid can be calm or rough. It won't make you seasick, though.
