High Tide

2018

High Tide is a site-responsive performance in which I tried to join forces with the ocean during the erosion process of a cliff. Using a glass vessel, I repeatedly gathered and threw Atlantic Ocean water against the nearest cliff, on which waves break throughout high tide.

The performance started when the tide hit its lowest point and continued for a period of five hours, during which time I repeatedly gathered and threw hundreds of liters of ocean water against the rocks; in a dialogue between my body, the movement of the waves, the unresting forces of the ocean, and concepts of endurance, effort, human and natural labor, geological transformation and sea-level rise.
