2005, site-specific installation, Sullivans Cove precinct Hobart. Part of Dockworks, an offsite CAST Gallery exhibition for the Hobart Summer Festival, coordinated with Tasmanian Ports Authority, coinciding with the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.

Reclaimed hand basins were mounted upright in the water of the harbourside, their backs having been enamelled to create an overall surface. Time constructs the installation as, situated at the mean height of the high and low tide, it is alternately submerged or exposed.
