(CBS) - And now for some beautiful science. The exhibit in this video is on display at Poland's National Museum in Wroclaw. The ocean motion being modeled is actully taking place in the Pacific Ocean, south of Alaska. Confused? Don't be.

The installation, called "Tele-present Water," collects data in real-time from a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy. (Station 46246, if you're curious.) As artist David Bowen describes it, "The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure."
