Navigating the impermanent

The Ocean alters,reassembles and disperses.It diversifies and reacts to the constant erosion.The scattered evidence of this is often found lurking among the rocky shores or on expansive sandy beaches.The sea filters and scrambles material remains by disintegration,destruction,decomposition,and decay.

When a ship is wrecked, it suffers many changes of state until the remains eventually reach equilibrium with their environment.Initially,the wrecking process changes it from the human organised form of a working vessel to an unstable state of structure and artefacts underwater.Natural forces act upon it during the wrecking process and continue to act
until equilibrium is reached.
