Fans who have followed Swoon’s (interviewed) career path have certainly heard of her famous Swimming Cities of Serenissima, a floating art installation last seen at the Brooklyn Museum last year. But what has become of that iconic DIY vessel since then? It looks like our friends at Brooklyn Street Art have the answer as they have documented the final resting place for one of the NY-based artist’s most recognizable creations. Swoon has decided to dock it in a wooded area away from the city where it can be a shelter for animals & birds and be slowly re-assimulated into nature – a fitting end for this particular example of her work, mirroring the ephemeral nature of street art.
