The Sea is intricately linked to the sensations and emotion of loss,
in particular the taste of salt, the wavelike pattern of mourning,
and the sense of the infinite beyond the horizon.

At regular intervals over the course of the exhibition, a sailing vessel
will attempt to transcribe a perfect square on the waters off the
Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk. This act is intended to honor the
memory of my mother, and to recognize the experience of loss
as universal.

The recurrent circumnavigation of a square on the water, a dynamic
surface that erases all marks, represents the practice of memory,
which is living; to continue amidst the harsh externalities of the
ocean and the weather, death, and the limits of the possible.
