2009 Public Art Installation
Brooklyn Bridge Park announced the arrival of Mary Mattingly’s Waterpod at Pier 5 in August 2009, one of several stops on its journey through the waterways surrounding the five boroughs of New York City. Built from recycled materials and eco-friendly products, Waterpod was a floating sculptural living space designed as an eco-residence for community and artist activities. Sponsored by the Action Arts League, Waterpod provided a habitat where four artists lived, worked and held events to further the artistic, ecological, scientific and cultural richness of New York. Waterpod was at Pier 5 from August 7, 2009 to August 17, 2009.
