Fine Arts and Art Installation Design Intertidal Deployment Objects Sculptural Design Concept by Trygve Faste and Jessica Swanson Intertidal Deployment Objects collaborate with the marine environment to generate dynamic ceramic surfaces. The designers were excited to work with barnacles, as they are capable of creating uniquely complex and beautiful shells. The concept was to design a modular system of interchangeable ceramic forms that promote barnacle growth. Some sections were submerged into the ocean to grow marine life. Months later, after the barnacles had grown, these components were removed from the ocean and reassembled into completed pieces.
