"Wetland" floating sculpture

Serving as a submerged sculpture, stage, and floating island, Wetland embodied imagined futures based on participatory design events in Philadelphia. Launched on August 15, 2014, Wetland embodied an urban ecotopia, featuring live, work, and performance spaces alongside sustainable elements like rainwater collection, purification systems, hydroponic gardens, beehives, and composting. Through free events and workshops, it amplified the movements of urban farming and ecological practices, showcasing the transformative potential of individual actions.
