Artist Simulates Rolling Ocean Waves Inside of Art Museum Windows

Hey guys! How are you doing? After a long sequence of posts about illustrations, digital manipulations and etc, I have finally found something interesting in the field of installation arts. Therefore, I can’t wait to present you a Swiss-based artist Zimoun and his large art installation implemented inside one of the Switzerland’s art museums windows.

Zimoun “pimped” museum windows by simulating rolling ocean waves inside of them. The most interesting thing is that there was no single drop of water used in making of this art installation. This is because Zimoun’s art installation just imitates the movement patterns of ocean waves, while the water is substituted with a packaging peanuts. Artist explains the basis of his decision, “Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of curiously collected material, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena blends effortlessly with electric reverberation in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions.”

I would love to see any local museum or other commercial premises “pimped” in this way in my hometown.
