Citizen Bridge 
(2012-ongoing) is a contemporary re-imagining of a walkable sandbar that once linked Brooklyn to Governors Island. Both an object and event, Citizen Bridge intends to reframe New York City’s harbor as public space and vital resource for all. A temporary 1400-ft. floating sculpture and the pathway for the powerful yet intimate experience of walking on water, it will be a new kind of connection between New Yorkers and their waterways to catalyze a positive and empowered relationship with climate change.
