A figure slowly straightens up. Strictly speaking, it is only half a figure or rather a pair of waders that gradually inflates. Along with it rises a canoe that is buoyed by means of steering rollers and water canisters attached to ropes. Inspired by the natural rhythm of the tides, pressure and tension alternate here with a feeling of emptiness and release.
