This piece is a poetic visualisation of the wave heights recorded by a weather mark located off the West Coast of Ireland.
"I'm not homesick, I'm just missing the sea... " After moving to London to do an MFA in Computational Art O'Leary realised how much she was missing the sea. Using wave data collected from the West Coast of Ireland, the corners of the fabric are tilted using micro-servos. The degree of rotation is determined by the wave heights and is connected to the fabric using invisible thread. The reflection of the fabric and the wave like motion hopes to connect people to the sea when they cannot physically get there. The moving sculpture is situated at the intersection of science and art. Combining technology with creativity the work converts a spreadsheet of wave height values into a mesmerizing installation that visualises the wave patterns over a period of one year.
