I decided to build an essential dry dock, using the minimum possible elements and eliminating everything that was superfluous. Each of the three structures of the piece consists of two parallel beams resting on another transversal that acts as an altar and generator of unevenness. The scale of each structure is slightly higher than the human scale but deliberately inferior to the naval scale. The trio of structures that make up the piece affects the idea of ​​repetition associated with ritual. The three Iroco wood structures are completed with three Macael white marble plates engraved with three words – nothing, stillness and waves – in reference to a verse from the poem Mares by Juan Ramón Jiménez.
