See how a weird location changing remote control takes a lazy surfer and a confused seagull on the journey of their lifes, as part of the 2011 Protest Obstacle Series, where surfers are being hindered to enjoy their most urgent need: riding the waves!
This installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from 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 is 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.
