The Broadway Beach project was meant to be a single day outing with one raft, a couple paints, and a drill. Using local driftwood, styrofoam, and rope we would create something enormous; visible from the Williamsburg Bridge above us. We painted driftwood for visibility, based on a Maritime aesthetic we’re investigating (think of the colors on fishing bobbers & buoys). Whats left to chance is the way this gathered garbage will move on its own with tide and current. The possibilities reminded us of a certain dime store novelty toy …the one where a loose chain creates a cartoon character’s profile… we tried to recreate/demonstrate this toy in the video.
