There’s nothing that can ruin a nice panorama faster than an ugly billboard. Realizing that, Korean digital media tech company D’strict decided to think outside the box and came up with a creative installation that doubles as an art piece. They used the massive LED screen in the COEX Square of Seoul’s Gangnam District to display majestic crashing waves and their installation quickly went viral.

D’strict’s new installation is titled #1_WAVE with Anamorphic illusion, and is a part of the Public Media Series. This is not the first time the company blessed us with these impressive simulated waves – last year they created a similar installation title The Infinity Wall for the Nexen UniverCity Project.

If you’re unfamiliar with COEX, it’s a convention and exhibition center, as well as a gigantic mall located in the Gangnam District.

The waves are an anamorphic illusion, meaning they can only be correctly viewed from a certain point

The giant LED displays developed by Samsung measure at 80.1 meters in length and 20.1 meters in height and can support resolutions of up to 7,840×1,952 pixels.

It’s refreshing to see something that isn’t advertisements displayed on the massive screens!

The giant LED screens in COEX are usually used to display ads and K-pop so it’s refreshing to see something different for once. Let’s hope the company surprises us with more creative installations in the future!
