Using barrier islands as a launching point, FIN aims to explore the possibility of manipulating land formation through the choreography of prototyped FIN devices. To thoroughly explore this phenomenon, a systematic documentation of water and sediment flow against an array of rotating fins is recorded and a notation system to understand the stochastic distribution of flow and deposition is developed. While the investigation was limited and scaleless, the simplicity allowed a formal understanding of these relational patterns.
