Made for an exhibition in a Civil War era fort in San Francisco, the piece highlights the only major battle that took place here. The one between the fort and the sea. The work imagines the structure had been engulfed and submerged by the Pacific Ocean and the various personal and military objects left behind were both destroyed by and transformed by the Ocean releasing them into a new life and life form. This work is a collaboration with Mark Dion.
