Rescue Games simulates the sea waves movement but in a controlled manner.
This way, the energy released by the waves goes to a creative end instead of a destructive aim. The boat is permanently swinging creating little controled waves. A little ocean
The ideia for this piece comes from Higgins Boat. A landing craft boat that was used in World War II.
