The installation consists of five eight-metershigh acrylic columns filled with 40 tons of water, inside of which artistic objects called Submobiles independently move up and down, surfacing and submerging. Surrounded by giant gleaming pillars reflected in the mirrors on the ceiling, the viewers find themselves in some sort of a compact image of the ocean and, while observing the monotonous movement of objects, experience the feeling of aesthetic «submersion» and «ascension».
