Seismic Wave is a 100 meter long mural by the danish artist Carl Krull. It is painted on the wall that encircles the Metro construction, in the middle of the lake Sortedamsøen, in Copenhagen, Denmark. The mural is done in black and white. The subject is shaped through an abundance of vertical lines, which in an almost sculptural manner makes the mural seem to protrude like ripples on the surface of the lake itself or a topographical map of the seabed. Foreground and background is entangled and repealed in universe where various formations emerge, some resemble eyes and others remain undefined.

Carl Krull is a danish artist based in Copenhagen. He is a consummate draftsman whose practice centers around drawing. Utilizing an almost sculptural approach in his drawings, the lines seem to protrude the paper in a way that resemble phenomena found in nature like the formations in stalactite caves or the growth rings found in trees. His working methods involve the invention of elaborate drawing techniques that act as constraints but simultaneously break open new territory.
