Mission bay is one of the most beautiful bays in the country, and yet when this artwork was created, it also was one of the most polluted bays. Beautiful from the outside and yet possibly toxic if you were swimming or sailing in it. The contrast of this piece was formed from the purified drinking water bottles that both marked the natural water line patterns formed by nature as well as creating an artificial protective barrier.
