This large floating sculpture is an image in motion, an image of a vessel. Moving in relation to the glacial river in an ongoing appearance of a never ending motion, questioning our own balance, progress and movement through space and time. Our awareness is within each of us, and no matter how far we go or where, we proceed without moving, against a flow of time and space.

The piece is expected to change with time, turning darker in color. The casting is layered up with individual pours, built up as the geological strata in the surrounding mountains, while reflecting the waves of the water. It is cast upside down to suggest a material emergence out of the water.
