In 1944/45, the US-Navy researched the optimal height for a nuclear bomb detonation at Salton Sea. In "Project Y" ballistic and aerodynamic behaviors of different bomb types were studied by way of test targets. “Marine Target 10MA” still seems to be contaminated from its original purpose: birds rot, metal rusts on long-dried mud. Between equilateral steel constructions vacant nests tell of vain attempts at founding life here. Marine Target registers all of that, layers the history of the location onto its frames before it becomes a target itself.
