St. Petersburg-based audiovisual artist collective 'Tundra' created an incredible interactive art installation entitled 'My Whale' for the '9 Lights in 9 Rooms' exhibit in Seoul, Korea. The Korean 'My Whale' exhibit is an extension of a similar art piece created by the Tundra in Moscow.

Just looking at photos and videos of My Whale would leave anyone in awe. The hexagonal patterns that move across the exhibit reflect whale vocalization, which is enhanced by the artist-constructed sound effects. People can sit within the interactive art installation and feel like they're inside the whale or surrounded by the aquatic creatures. The entire experience, drawing over 200,000 visitors, looks captivating and hypnotic.

Tundra's My Whale art installation is an example of the popularity of modern and contemporary art.
