Site-responsive performance in which I tried to join forces with the ocean, contributing to the erosion process of a cliff. With the aid ot a glass vessel, I repeatedly gathered and threw hundreds of liters of Atlantic ocean water against the cliffs where the waves break during high tide.

The performance started when the tide hit its lowest point and continued for a period of four hours; in a dialogue between my body, the tides, the unresting forces of the ocean, and concepts of erosion, human and natural labor, induced sea-level rise, and timescales that go beyond the human.
