designer's own words:

Eco Wave has two main objectives;
First, it addresses the importance of water stream as an alternative, sustainable energy source. Utilizing a friction between the gravity and the river flow, Eco Wave generates enough electricity for its own illumination and other neighboring infrastructure such as streetlights. Second, it raises public awareness on alternative energy, using its illuminated display as a big social message board. The public can see instantly what it is about and eventually will understand better the ‘green’ energy technology. Also Eco Wave will position City of Seoul as a green capital of the world.
