Lighthouse

Finnish artists Pekka Niittyvirta and Timo Aho have created “Lines (57° 59′ N, 7° 16′ W)”, a prescient, site-specific interactive installation that uses LED lights and sensors to show where the high tides will reach on existing structures when the sea level ultimately rises.

The name of the project refers to the location of the low-lying island archipelago of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides islands west Scotland.
