The title of the work denotes the latitude and longitude where Hall’s boat sank during a microburst on Narragansett Bay. Extreme weather phenomena like microbursts are happening more frequently as climate change becomes more severe. The work is embossed with metal bottle caps, referencing the loss of the past when one could pick up sea glass and metal bottle caps that would break down in the ocean. These are intertwined with embossed plastic bottle caps representing the present and the ongoing threat of plastic pollution.
