DIY on the East River

All work and hardly any play is what it sounds like in this story by Melena Ryzik in yesterday’s NY Times about a sustainable art Waterpod project on a barge off Brooklyn. There’s so much work to do in this navigable farm/garden/art residence that the artists don’t have time to make the art. They’re too busy feeding chickens, cooking, cleaning, and working out the kinks in their sustainable systems. ¬†Ultimately, the enterprise itself is the art, although that’s not what the founder, Mary Mattingly, wanted. Interesting article.
