The focus of the installation is a frieze of 12-foot-tall illuminated letters, engineered to withstand hurricane-force winds.
Installation shots. The custom-engineered letters incorporate a protective screen designed to prevent pigeons from nesting.
The program includes interior directional and environmental signage, incorporating an excerpt from a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay (“We were very tired, we were very merry — We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry”).
We believe poetry and architecture go well together.
As an additional part of the program, we created a series of short films that were displayed over the ferry slips.
The films addressed the topics of water, art, transportation, time, the Statue of Liberty, and faces of New York.
