Incredible Floating Walkway Being Constructed Across Italian Lake

Christo15

“The Floating Piers” is a giant floating dock system nearing completion on Lake Iseo in Italy. 220,000 high-density poly-ethylene cubes will be covered in 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric to create an epic walkway 3 kilometers long.

The project is the brainchild of artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, known for large-scale installations. Although Jeanne-Claude passed away in 2009, Christo has continued to pursue “The Floating Piers”, originally conceived together in 1970. More progress shots below!

Artist Spotlight: Kamea Hadar

Kamea2

Congratulations to my good friend Kamea Hadar, one of the directors of Pow! Wow!, who fittingly became a father halfway through painting this mural in Hawaii. I say fittingly because the piece is a portrait of Barack Obama entitled “Hapa”, which means “part” or “partial” in Hawaiian, and refers to people of mixed race.  Barack Obama was born in Honolulu to a white mother from Kansas and a black father from Kenya. Kamea, who currently lives in Honolulu, was born in Israel to a half Japanese half Korean mother, and an Israeli father.
