This project takes the form of a novel collective art activism, combining the skills of craft, design, art, engineering and diplomacy. Different people from a variety of disciplines have been invited to contribute. 

An implicit undercurrent, their love for the sea, is the connection that unites them. Their combined humanity and creativity will enable this project to succeed.
