A few years after the first work of this series, Rey recreated the shipwreck of thousands of differently colored Kinder Surprise eggs that invaded the island of Langeeog, on the Baltic Sea coast, in Shipwreck II, an installation composed of metallic sandbanks filled with pink sand and hundreds of chicken eggs. In this case, the artist wanted to emphasize the contrast between the natural and the artificial, the real and the false, by replacing beach sand with pink artificial sand and by using biodegradable chicken eggs in place of the plastic eggs.
