Your Planet: The Human Mapping Project here.
 
Site-specific for shoreline areas, this work can involve the community on several levels. The work has been performed at several location, often held in conjunction with coastal clean up efforts, which are held around the globe and we recommend as a related participatory event.

Performances culminate with a ritual walk to the water.
