Maritime Messaging: Red Hook, 2017

The art of Katherine Behar

"Maritime Messaging" 10/29/17 a collaboration between artist Katherine Behar, PortSide and Pioneer Works. PortSide contributed all the text from RHWS which Behar put through a neural network to "teach water to talk." A video presented moving water, and the AI voice speaking the WaterStories language it learned about Red Hook while the words typed over the video. Performers presented the work on all NYC Ferries arriving in Red Hook that day, and the sound was installed on our ship both inside and outside.
