Tele-Present Water Simulates a Spot in the Pacific from Halfway Around the World
Artist David Bowen is known for his kinetic sculptures that are driven by real-world data from natural phenomenon. For his work “Tele-Present Water,” first exhibited at the National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland, Bowen pulled real-time wave intensity and frequency data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) buoy station 46246 (49°59’7″ N 145°5’20″ W) located in the remote Shumagin Islands of Alaska. This information was scaled and transferred to a mechanical grid structure, resulting in an uncanny live simulation of the movement of water from halfway around the world. The piece, along with Bowen’s other works, speaks to the way technology and telecommunications can both alienate us from and unite us with the natural world. While technology has enabled us to control and model phenomena with unprecedented precision, it may also provide a means to understand the world in a more intimate, visceral way.

One of the only two existing solar furnaces in the world completed in Uzbekistan in 1987 and showcased in Архитектура СССР (Architecture USSR), Issue 3-4, 1988. The grainy photos of the furnace in the landscape make it seem like an etching of an ancient temple, an image heightened by Helios in his chariot, seen in the section drawing.
(Some modern day photos and info at English Russia.)
