The Wave of Matter art installation may not look like much, but it relies on another sense besides sight to reel audiences in. It is made up of countless of mini metallic balls that shift from one end of a tilting table top to the other thanks to invisible mechanics. As they travel from one end to the other, the Wave of Matter art installation makes a sound very much like an ocean. Nevertheless, it is visually captivating as well.

Finnish artistic duo Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen, the Wave of Matter art installation is a mind-numbing creation that will send people into a mesmerizing trance, just like the real ocean is capable of doing. More than that, people watch on anxiously to see if the giant tray will tip over completely.
