Always working in relation to the site I work on I used the invitation to work in the harbor city of Cuxhaven, to produced new work to fit the little pond, without any real utilities, in the middle of the city center. For this particular place I proposed to created a piece associating a sailing boat and a street light. Almost invisible during the day the sculpture plays with our habits and becomes more visible when the light turns on following the rhythm of the city‘s lights.
