The chemical strips came as a temporary substitute to check PH, presence of copper, nitrogen etc. The tests were conducted regularly, together with the diary of diet. As part of the How to Make an Ocean each strip was annotated with the date and reason for crying.

The images made out of the individual squares of chemical strips became an investigation into the aesthetics of human body condition and health and whether it can be reflection of health of the environment.
