Tide Flowers

Hudson River Park Trust Commission Hudson River Piers 26 and 25, New York, New York, 2006
33 units 9’ wide Marine vinyl, steel, polycarbonate plastic, foam. Hudson River Park

Nature does not stop in the city. The Hudson River, brushing against the concrete and glass of the urban fabric, rises up and down twice a day with the eternal clock of the tides. This tidal activity connects us to the ocean, to the moon and to a daily schedule that is nature’s own.

Tide Flowers will register the tidal movement with a simple visual presence of brilliantly-colored flowers blooming at high tide and closing at low tide. Tide Flowers is made up of thirty-three flower units, each with six petals, attached to selected wooden piles on two piers. Twenty-five flowers will be placed in a field-like formation on selected pilings at the end of one pier
