Stacy Levy environmental art

I mentioned some stuff about Stacy Levy in class on Tuesday. She’s a really interesting environmental artist from Philadelphia and does installations to make people observe and appreciate subtle parts of the environment. Here’s one of my favorites:

“The water flow of the creek varies widely depending on rainfall. Bushkill Curtain will register the changing levels of water, hanging straight down in low water or floating on the surface as the stream rises. It also responds to the wind, blowing like a sheer fabric. This temporary project (June 2011 through August , 2012) was created for The Arts in the Urban Environment Festival. This site is a juncture where the masonry of the industrial architecture meets with the liquid nature of a stream. The curtain creates a meeting point of manmade materials with the elements of wind and water. It is made of 750 buoys strung on steel cable.”
