This Flip-Discs artwork visualizes the real-time ebb-and-flow of the tides on a specific coast somewhere in the world. The speed, direction, and swell height are all represented in how the piece moves.

As one walks up to the piece, their image is reflected back. The contrast of their image changes based on the state of the current tide.

Note: With each edition, the collector gets to have some input on which tide the piece will represent, as well as how often the piece animates. If constant noise is of concern, it's common for collectors to have the piece move every 15 or 30 minutes and "sleep" at night.
