    Sandbags are a response to flooding. Bunkers are a defensive structure - sometimes the place of final capitulation or surrender. The threat of climate change and sea level rise are both real and imagined. The beach is a place of fun and play. This community constructed work explores the above and provides a focal point for the exhibition closing ceremony.
