These silhouettes reflect a consideration of the overlapping social, political, and environmental forces that shift how we use and view the waterfronts over time. A working water front can represent one important aspect of a thriving coastal city, while recreational use of the waterfront can represent another important use. These are important considerations to weigh with open eyes.

First created these pieces for a temporary installation in the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition in their fabulous civil-war era warehouse space, the Sky Cranes have now come home to a permanent installation in Boston’s HarborArts. At HarborArts they recapitulate their surroundings, a working waterfront that fosters an overlapping and simultaneous recreational use in exhibiting art and welcoming visitors.
