Perhaps life really is a beach here. Every summer day, in a seasonal pattern of movement, crowds arrive in the morning and leave around evening. Tracking the day like a sundial, the shadow the installation casts across the site suggests a less strict sense of time. Time defined by light and atmosphere, by shade and sensation.
In the morning the sun casts shadows over the western side of the site as cars and beachgoers arrive.
It’s close enough to hear, but just out of view.
