Installation Art in Bangkok Brings Back Memory of the Sea

BANGKOK – An installation art project has arrived in Bangkok, bringing a seaside experience with a difference to the bustling city.

A visitor’s waving hand is all that could be seen, with the rest of her body submerged beneath a white-colored sea of 250,000 recycled, antimicrobial plastic balls at a mall in the Thai capital on Thursday.

“The Beach,” an interactive art project, uses scaffolding, paneling and mirrors to create an environment that feels similar to being in the ocean.

As visitors move themselves further into the sea of balls, they can find themselves being gradually submerged, an epa journalist reported.

“The Beach” is designed by Snarkitecture, a New York-based company which “reimagines both the natural and cultural elements of the beach to create an unexpected and memorable experience,” according to the firm’s website.

Initially commissioned in 2015 by the National Building Museum in Washington DC, “The Beach” was exhibited in Tampa, Florida and Washington DC before traveling to Sydney’s Barangaroo Reserve in January and Paris in March.

Although the Bangkok exhibition has been scaled down relative to previous installations in other cities, which showcased over a million white plastic balls, the project maintains its immersive and interactive qualities, creating an environment of relaxation and fun for people of all ages.

The installation art runs from May 18 to June 18 at the Central Embassy mall in Bangkok.
