23. EVAN HAWKINS
A dramatic sculptural installation depicts a shipwreck with the aim of giving the viewer an unmitigated view of disaster after it has already come and gone. Visitors are able to walk among the wreckage and see an ocean floor unimpeded by water and silt. This installation brings the viewers into contact with the unexpected and the fantastic.
