At low tide long beaches with smoothly rounded stones, grinded by the water over thousands of years, are exposed. The installation highlights the beauty of three stones, lifting them from the others.

As they are turned into sculptural objects, the beach become their gallery. Eventually the installation is submerged by the sea as the tide rises.

This development can be halted at level of either of the three stones depending on how we curb the emissions of greenhouse gases.
