THE BEST WAY TO GET FROM HERE TO WATERWORLD
The Waterpod Project
It's always been our fantasy to leave civilization behind and go sailing on a self-sustaining farm boat where we can live in harmony with the environment and make art. That's why as soon as this issue hits stands, we're dropping everything and joining Mary Mattingly and her rag-tag posse of artists, designers, farmers and engineers aboard the Waterpod Project. After three years of planning, designing, building and tweaking, the retro-fitted barge, functional farm, exhibition space and sustainable artists' community is currently on its summer-long maiden voyage around the five boroughs. We're planning to stow away on the Waterpod sometime between August 4 and 17, when it's moored at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
