This video piece highlights the difference between the Alantic and Pacific Oceans via physical stereotypes and actual footage of both oceans, exploring the relationship between figure and landscape. Each model has the Atlantic off of one shoulder and the Pacific off the other, confusing which ocean the model is physically within. The halyard chanty "Blow Boys Blow" represents the attempt to connect the two sides. The voice singing the verses was just as invisible to the models as was the opposite ocean.
