Islands, accidents

Projections on an Eco Barge in Philly

Mary Mattingly’s Wet Land aimed at strategies for confronting operations in a future where networks of dependency suffer under ecological, physical and political collapse; during the summer of '14, the sculpture and living space played host to a variety of workshops dedicated to enhancing public knowledge around community activism, ecology and sustainable technology. Delta_Ark developed Islands, Accidents for the installation. Fulfilling the role of establishing both context and text, Islands, Accidents cycled between a detailed schedule of the events active during attendance at the project and a litany of undeniable and resilient objects that the vessel putatively encountered during its voyage through a flooded future world.
