Crash The ocean is never still. Waves crash continuously. While observing from the shore, we expect to see waves on the horizon. One never crashes the same as another. Never the same height, pressure, distance or rhythm. Waves transmit energy, not water. Once crashed, a specific whitewater formation appears, then disappears. I have taken a series of still images of these whitewater formations from the Santa Monica Pier to inspire and imitate the patterns and directions choreographically.
