A tidal wave sweeps through the Trondheim fjord in Norway every twelve hours raising the water with approximately two meters. At low tide long beaches with smoothly rounded stones, grinded by the water over thousands of years, are exposed. The installation highlights the beauty of three stones, lifting them from the others. As they are turned into sculptural objects, the beach become their gallery. Eventually the installation is submerged by the sea as the tide rises. On a larger time span humans are creating an artificial tidal wave, causing the sea levels to rise due to the greenhouse effect
