This book visually and tactilely mimics the action of a body in water. The Bernoulli equation for unsteady potential flow (named for Daniel Bernoulli, 18th-century Dutch-Swiss mathematician) is used, among other places, in the theory of ocean surface waves and acoustics. Digital pigment on paper. Palm leaf structure. A custom lidded box with magnet closure. The book rests in a Phi-shaped recess.

To more fully appreciate the fluidity of this work and the structure Amandine has perfected for this project there is an online video.
