Floating Island Around Manhattan Island



Some of you may have seen Smithson's "Floating Island Around Manhattan Island" this past fall. It was the realization of his concept, developed I believed in the 70's, in which he wanted to pull an artificial island around Manhattan via tug. I love it .... water, manhattan, spectacle and boats - doesn't get better.

I took his original 70's concept sketch and superimposed actual shots of the tug, island and skyline from the 2005 exhibit. I didn't want to overshadow the original work, but wanted to give a flavor for conception of an idea through execution.
