The SMTown Coex Atrium in Seoul, South Korea has a new art installation gracing the large LED screen that wraps the outside of the building. The screens, which were installed in 2018, are the largest outdoor, high-definition LED advertising screens in South Korea. 

Measuring 80.1 meters in width and 20.1 meters in height, the screen typically projects K-pop videos, but is currently equipped with an anamorphic illusion of a crashing wave. Created by d'strict, when viewed from the correct angle the illusion uses both the front and sides of the building's screen to create the illusion of a giant crashing wave.

Complete with matching audio, the wave sloshes back and forth appearing as though it has been captured inside the building itself. Take a look at the Wave in action below.
