I made you a map!
Find your way by car or bus to the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Aviation Road. It’s right between the Belt Parkway and the Marine Parkway Bridge.
If you drove, park in the lot down on Aviation Road and walk back past the ranger station and bus shelter to the intersection.
On the west side of the road at the intersection, look for a sandy trail. There’s some construction in progress, so go around the orange fencing.
Then you can take any of three sand trails to the beach that borders Dead Horse Bay. I suggest the northern one. It’ll put you out next to a bench and in an area full of glass, pottery, and porcelain. Then walk south toward the point, along the beach. You’ll pass the bottle tree that way, and come around the corner with a great view of the bridge.
Dead Horse Bay mapped (in blue, below Marina), and found poem, “SE.”
35mm shots from Dead Horse Bay last weekend.
And a new photo in the Contact section, too!
Last weekend I got to return to Dead Horse Bay for the first time in over a year thanks to a brief residency at Ace Hotel in New York, NY. I’m having some film developed and am sorting through all the objects and digital images. New posts soon!
Two finds from Lake Michigan this evening: “LE,” and “E / MAASTRIGHT / DE IN HOLLAND.”
I’m the Ace Hotel & Tumblr artist in residence this weekend! I’ll be picking at Dead Horse Bay, and textual fragments of glass, pottery, and porcelain will become part of the hotel’s permanent collection.
A cento poem from the Detritus project titled “Hammer” will be on display at Page Gallery (SAIC’s Writing Department exhibition space)!
On view between August 25th and November 1st, Mass & Matter inaugurates the space and featured mixed-media-visual-text works from jacquard weavings to typewriter-debossed photographs to glitter paper.
