This Ecco the Dolphin art installation is a pure trip

Ecco the Dolphin inspires many feelings: awe, sadness, regret, absolute terror. I hate to use the word "experience" -- such a loaded cliche -- but Ecco is indeed an experience of the mind and body. Artist Andrew Norman Wilson believes as much, which is why he wants to develop a bizarre art installation called "Center for Wave Change" based around the Sega Genesis classic.

The centerpiece of the installation is "ECCOS," an 80-minute run of Ecco the Dolphin that has been warped and stretched to six hours in length. You can catch a sample of the video above in all its trippy, ambient glory. The video will play on a screen in the middle of an echo chamber with speakers and mirrors and waterbeds and sh*t.

It's bananas, and I would pay good money to visit this place, if it's ever finished.
