Rasmas Strange Thue and his Art Installation Tidal Sun

Published on 7 August, 2017 at 2:07 pm

Title: Tidal Sun

Artist:Rasmus Strange Thue

Site: Vejle Fjord, Denmark

Tidal Sun consists of 1000 self-filling cover balls floating on the inlet of Vejle, Denmark.  The figures of the balls change shape as nature effects the area around Vejle . The tide exposes underlying balls which collide and move with the figures and creating different shapes with the floating cover balls. Winds and currents also affect the figures as it becomes a figure of the natural forces at this specific spot.

Euro-Matic cover balls have all sorts of uses, but this recent application really displays the beauty of demonstrating the natural force of water movements. As the currents move or the winds create movement, shapes and figures such as angels appear.

What we find fascinating about this art installation is that every time you view it, people will see something individual to that moment in time.
