A deckhand cleans the ballast tanks of a cargo ship. Ballast water acts as bottom-heavy weight for ships that aren't carrying above-deck cargo. It is a medium for both safe voyage and the transport of invasive species. Operating below the realm of logistics and containerized precision, the deckhand sifts through a water that will rejoin a new sea. The publication he finds is an invitation amidst the unintentional (or the undesirable).
