This project created a visual and physical connection between the Rotterdam Cruise Terminal and the Port of Rotterdam, the largest marine port in the world. Sound elements were created when strong winds blew against the netted sculpture. The sculpture’s form also evolved, as weight from snow and sleet changed its shape throughout the its installation period.
