Newtown Creek Armada

An interactive art installation on the Newtown Creek, inviting visitors to pilot a fleet of artist-made, miniature, remote-controlled boats along the creek’s surface while at the same time documenting the hidden world of its waters. The Newtown Creek Armada is a collaboration between three Brooklyn artists – Laura Chipley, Nathan Kensinger, and Sarah Nelson Wright – whose individual work creatively investigates industry, ecology, and change in urban spaces. The project is presented in partnership with North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (nbART) and with maritime support from the North Brooklyn Boat Club.
