Marpi’s installation named “The Wave” is an interactive, meditative touchscreen that uses 3D computer graphics to create an abstractive wave form. The installation is a large scale installation that allows users to touch the multiple screens and guide the water particles. The shapes of that particles that make up the wave are generative, and they are constantly evolving and moving. I admire its simplicity and its tendency not to overdo the project with crazy colors or movements, but Marpi’s installation is a flowy, slow-moving art. Just watching the video is incredibly soothing and satisfying as I follow each particle from its beginning point to its end.
Marpi’s simulation is built by using open source shaders powered by Three.js. In an interview, he says that he is inspired by the people he interacts with every day, and believes art is a way to show others his dreams and place people inside his art.
