Reef is a fantastic installation in New York that simulates the swaying of a living underwater coral reef. Designed by Rob Ley and Joshua Stein, the walk-through display is at Storefront Art and Architecture all summer until August 1, 2009.
The exhibit employs a material technology called SMS, or Shape Memory Alloys. The metal used is highly temperature sensitive which creates the automated kinetic movement of the white flaps as people move throughout the structure.
