Mal-baħar / Conversations with the sea

A temporary site-specific installation along the San Gorg Breakwater Pontoon which aims to create a physical and experiential path along the pontoon through the positioning and the interaction with objects in the space. These objects recall familiar settings and foster a thought journey through the locality’s past, present and possible future events.
