Alternative Pathways for a Sea Voyager

While using materials found in relation to sailing, I depicted a journey between two land masses.  I embedded a dwelling along this crossing, one which may succumb to natural elements and thus reflect a state of rawness, the dwelling is a mere blip along a 27 mile journey.

Initially playing off the word “caesura” or a brief speculation or spatial break in ones journey-providing a better experience for viewer. This lead me to create individual moments rather than designing the whole.
