Mé, a Japanese art collective, is exhibiting an artwork depicting turbulent ocean water, compressed in a small room, titled “Contact”, as a part of the Mori Art Museum.

The hyper-realistic artwork suspends stormy ocean swell within the confines of a small room. A window behind the work lets natural light flood in, and as the sun moves throughout the day, the ripples appear to slightly shift in form.

By capturing the tumultuous nature of ocean currents in such acute detail, Mé indeed brings our attention to the uncertain future of Earth’s oceanic waters. ‘Contact’ is on display at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan, until May 26, 2019.
