Floating Cities That Sail The Seas

30 artists create Swimming Cities to travel and perform.

Pirate ships are out and insane floating cities made from recycled materials are in this sailing season. 30 artists from around the United States have combined their efforts to create ‘Swimming Cities,’ a travelling piece of land enabling the group to travel and perform for the world. Designed and organized by printmaker/installation artist SWOON, the urban islands were made in 2009, all out of salvaged materials. Take to the seas and take a look at the Swimming Cities and its populace in the images below. Anyone else get crazy Waterworld flashbacks?
