Closing Bell: Newtown Creek Armada to Set Sail


The artists Laura Chipley, Nathan Kensinger and Sarah Nelson Wright are collaborating on a project called the Newtown Creek Armada that will involve each of them creating miniature, radio-controlled boats that visitors can maneuver around the Newtown Creek. The boats “will be equipped with an underwater camera and lights, allowing participants to record a unique voyage on the creek.” The resulting videos will then give people “a chance to virtually immerse themselves in the toxic waters of this Superfund site.” The project will launch in Greenpoint this spring.
