Friday party!

I saw this* at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration building in Silver Springs, Maryland:



* (from the interwebs) "These waves, a real-time representation of the Atlantic Coastline being broadcast from Woods Hole, Massachusetts NOAA station, vary in height from six to twenty-four inches. Upon making 'land-fall' they can create surf up to twelve feet high. With Aquatic Development Group supplying the Vacuum Surge Wave System interpreting the modem fed live data, Jim Sanborn's conceptual work of art comes alive to demonstrate the power of the ocean."

  1. Nevermind the ocean; there have been seiches like that on the Great Lakes. They come on like tsunamis; people don't know what's happening till it's too late. :(
