Canute in Babbage

Canute is a machine for visualising the tide. It uses a set of pumps, valves and sensors to raise and lower the water levels in its three tubes. The tube on the left is one hour ago, on the right is one hour from now.

Canute can be described as an actualisation as it uses the same physical material it is representing as a medium. The project is part of collection of experiments in the recreation and translation of patterns of physical material in remote locations.
