315 painted wooden blocks

5,7 x 5,7 x 27 cm

 

Multi-colored blocks are assembled on a beach at low tide.They form a parallelepiped reminiscent of the cargo of a container ship. When the tide rises, the blocks are scattered as they would be after a ship sinks. Written on their sides are the names of fictional shipping companies: Syria Lines, Congo Inc., Ghana Shipping, etc.
