Junk Becomes Art

Conflux is the annual art and technology festival for the creative exploration of urban space in New York.

For the creative and creators out there, Conflux will host a discussion of the moving art display called Swimming Cities of Serenissima -- a handmade fleet of boats and a crew of artists traveling the Adriatic Sea from Slovenia to Venice from May to June 2009. The art boats are created from junk and performed the dreamy story of a drifting metropolis during the Venice Biennale, a celebrated contemporary art exhibition.

The Conflux workshop will provide a forum for discussion of the project with a slideshow introducing the project and the crew, a facilitated Q&A, and a moderated discussion.

The workshop takes place at the Barney Building at 34 Stuyvesant Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. It's open to the public this Friday, at noon. Suggested admission is $5.
