James’ photograph represents the tracks of the eternal rise and fall of the tide: perpetually in motion and fleeting in its form, but permanent in its rhythm and continuous since the beginning of time.

Bieundurry’s collaborative art represents the birth of the human soul or pirlirr, and spiritual guidance. The smaller impressions represent the human soul left to its own fate to find its human shell. The larger markers represent the guardians of the human soul that guard and shepherd others. Bieundurry was inspired by the daily tidal finding of the path by the water, like the pirlirr must find their way.

The art piece represents an overall image of rhythmic perfection and the continuity of life.
