Tidal Datums [adriensegalfurniture.blogspot.com] is a wooden table whose form is inspired by the formal language of data graphics. The table is intended to be a representation of analytic information through the medium of furniture. Data graphs were gathered from NOAA's historic tide database, more specifically the measurements of tides at San Francisco Bay over a 4 week period, and then translated into tangible material.
The forms modeled from the data not only reveal a dynamic pattern, but also facilitate a "new way" of experiencing information by enabling a physical interaction of tidal patterns with the body. Notably, this particular work will also feature the cover of a new book about tables.
