When it comes to modern art, digital technology is making quite an impact. Today the digital tech company D’strict returns, providing a look at is being called the world’s largest anamorphic illusion. Situated in Seoul’s Coex K-Pop Square, the piece entitled Public Media Art #1_ WAVE hovers over the street. The massive outdoor projection features crashing waves that take up these massive, curved screens. The screens are situated on the facade of the SMTown Coex Artium.
The water comes to life with crashing waves that seem to be contained in a massive glass box. The digital billboards measure 80.8 meters in width and 20.1 meters in height. That means they are roughly “four times the size of a basketball court in Seoul.” D’strict specializes in developing site-specific experiences. For this unique installation, the studio used a series of anamorphic illusion methods to create the massive waves.
Take a closer look at the Public Media Art #1_ WAVE installation in the video below and check out more of D’strict’s projects while you’re at it. Keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more art and digital design coming very soon.
