Inspired by the ever changing tides, and fascinated by how this unique stream of weather data is displayed as beautiful flowing curves across my screen, I wanted to research and explore this phenomenon ‘graphically’ on a series of furniture pieces.
Each line represents a two-day cycle of tides measured off the coast (December, 2008) near San Francisco. I chose to overlay the 15 ‘mapped’ tidal curves, to give a sense of the daily change and rhythmic chaos that seems to occur in the Pacific durning the month of December.
