Flow (or The Cry of the Leviathan) is an art installation from Parisian artist Baptiste Debombourg that uses hundreds of reclaimed windshields to fill a room in the form of a gargantuan wave.

Inspired by the idea of an apocalyptic wave, along with the destruction it could cause, Debombourg wanted to create something that people could interact with. Visitors are encouraged to walk on the display, apart from the sound of crunching glass beneath their feet, the walls are also covered in the glare of the gallery lights, which dance in various patterns.
