The artists combine video, installation, illustration, and poetry based on their overnight field research aboard trawlers. The gallery also features Coast Lines, an exploration of different ways to map the distance to the coast, curated by Creative Writing MFA students Dorian Rolston, Miranda Trimmier, and Joshua Riedel.
