An intricate demonstration of natural wonder, the 'Float' by panGenerator installation showcases a mix between art and modern design.

Using 3D cameras, this installation maps data of a fish's movement and creates 3D sculptures from its swimming path. The fish tank is surrounded by these cameras and is meant to explore new ways of interpreting reality and to see data as something artful and awe-inspiring. This ability to see wonder in simplicity "enables us all to appreciate the previously hidden aesthetic of a simple fish swimming around its tank," says Mark Wilson at Co.Design.

The idea that natural pattern can be converted to modern art is wondrous in its juxtaposition of nature and machine. Perhaps the future will hold a place for the harmonization of these seemingly opposing realms of beauty.
