Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea

Swimming cities of Switchback Sea is a flotilla of seven vessels made from scrap wood and discarded materials. A crew of 40 will navigate these bold boats on a stretch of the Hudson River, stopping for musical and theatrical performances along the way. It is designed and organised by printmaker and installation artist Swoon, with a multitude of collaborators including a playwright, a band, and a circus composer.

The 3 week journey ends when the boats arrive at at their "home port" - Deitch Studios, Long Island New York - where there is a large scale exhibition of Swoon's wooden, paper constructions and prints.
