Implicit is an animate object, physically relaying the constant stream of oceanic information transmitted by oceanic data buoys around the world. It fosters a connection to another place, outside of the immediate environment.


It is also an exploration of communication, mainly authorship and integrity of message; by relaying data as its original format—waves with varying amplitude and frequency—Implicit retains the intent of the original message, not losing or changing meaning by manipulating it to fit the communication medium.


Ocean waves recorded by data buoys are typically interpreted as numbers or graphs which strips the information of much of its evocative meaning. Implicit uses motion control to recreate the original waves—this maintains the original state of the information without displaying it in an ambiguous other form.


Implicit also acknowledges the often overlooked responsibility of technology to be accessible at a recognizably human level in addition to quantitatively handling information.
