In July 2017 Alex Gehrke installs a head-shaped buoy in the Fjord Lavangen in Norway. The floating sculpture, a replica of his own head cast in red polyester, is anchored to the seabed with a rope and a chain. The sculpture remains floating in the fjord for about 2 months before its removal by locals who feel disturbed by its human-like appearance. Exposed to direct sunlight, the red color of the head had faded and turned into a pale complexion.

This is the only remaining video documentation of the sculpture.
