Polartide 2013 is a sonification of the sea water levels from 4 islands realized in pods. Visitors approaching the pods will clearly hear sounds of water dripping into a large well creating the illusion of caps of deep wells. In actuality, there is no well, but pairs of very powerful speakers under the pods that produce the sounds of illusion thereof.
