Join us for this celebration of objects lost and found! Invoking the impermanence of memory and engaging the cycles of birth and loss that characterize New York’s physical as well as cultural landscapes, Found@Sea combines storytelling, ephemeral found object sculpture, collaborative art making and sustainability practices at Ft Tilden Beach.
The project solicits six creators to submit stories about beloved lost objects, and to construct natural found object sculptures dedicated to these items during this one-day event. Join us to view the sculptures and their stories, and watch them wash away with the tide. Participate in a collaborative storytelling event to weave a tale about found objects washed up at sea (collected earlier in a beach cleanup mission one week prior) with the imagination of the collective led by a professional storyteller.
