Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Season 1, Ep.1 : Citizen Bridge and Mary Mattingly, Swale



A quick introduction to host Nancy Nowaceks's Citizen Bridge project building a temporary bridge across Buttermilk Channel, followed by a conversation with artist Mary Mattingly on her interactive waterways sculptures, including her latest Swale, a floating food forest. Recorded under the Brooklyn Bridge, the talk covers Mattingly's long history of innovative waterways projects, and the complexities around her projects WetLand, Waterpod, and others. Donate to Mattingly's kickstarter here! Mary Mattingly creates sculptural ecosystems in urban spaces. She is currently working on a floating food forest for New York called “Swale” and recently completed a two-part sculpture “Pull” for the International Havana Biennial with the Museo National de Belles Artes de la Habana and the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Mary Mattingly’s work has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography, the Seoul Art Center, the Brooklyn Museum, the New York Public Library, deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, and the Palais de Tokyo. In 2009 Mattingly founded the Waterpod Project, a barge-based public space and self-sufficient habitat that hosted over 200,000 visitors in New York.
