The Waterpod


The Waterpod is a a certified public vessel, a vegetable and chicken farm, a hodge-podge of sustainable systems (solar panels, rainwater collection, bicyle-produced electricity) and a recycled, floating home for six artists.  They’ve lived there since Saturday and call it “a floating sculptural living structure designed as a new habitat for the global warming epoch.”  For the next five months, the 30×100 ft barge will travel dock to dock through the five boroughs and host public tours.  Right now the Waterpod is docked at Pier 2, Sheapshead Bay, Brooklyn; on July 6th it will be moved to Governor’s Island.
