An ambitious site specific exploration of the Gowanus Canal by Brooklyn artist Katarina Jerinic, with funds raised through Hatchfund.
In the artist's words: Cloud Drift is a series of monumental cyanotype-image flags to be flown over the Gowanus Canal in the summer of 2017 (June 21-September 21) at each of its pedestrian crossings––on Union, Carroll, Third and Ninth Streets. It is presented in partnership with Gowanus Souvenir Shop. Each flag will feature a photograph of the canal's surface with its floating debris, mucky formations and reflections of Brooklyn skies, signs and structures. Over each of the canal's bridges, an upside-down image of the water just below will fly in the sky above, transforming a dingy urban landscape into pictures of sublimely cloudy skies. These photographs will be printed as 3 x 5-foot cyanotypes on cotton canvas and attached to existing light posts. @katarina jerinic #katarinajerinic @gowanussouvenir
