Other mixed media and natural elements include found objects such as drift wood, seashells, rocks, deceased marine life and the marine flora found on the beach before and after the flooding occurred. Various electrical wiring and a small sensor mechanism embedded into one of the panels triggers light, air and sound movement to accompany the visual installation.
