Handmade Amphibious Craft
Made entirely of plywood & 2by4s to navigate the waterways of NY. This craft was later transformed into a sarcaphogus by the art collective DEARRAINDROP for a show at Deitch Gallery in 2004.
Stormwater Management System
Using a downspout bypass to keep a few old olive barrels topped off, the system can capture enough rain to hydrate a 25′ by 30′ rooftop garden filled with trees, vines, shrubs and plants. There is also a hacked sump pump & hoses to distribute water elsewhere if needed.
This broken sand filter machine was discarded in our garage space by a pair of disgruntled fishmongers. A coat of gold paint and an old boiler thermometer was all it took to turn the shell into a beerbot.
ROOFTOP GARDEN DECK
In Brooklyn, it’s all about having a killer outdoor space to enjoy the few parts of the year that the weather is agreeable. Over the course of a few years, I developed our barren rooftop into a thriving green zone in which to relax, have BBQs & escape the metropolitan grind.I made a ton of planter boxes, trellises, windscreens, rainwater collectors, and benches with salvaged materials from my work at Build it Green NY.
