The Living Barge

The Living Barge

The Living Barge Project is a large-scale, temporary public art installation by Sarah Kavage and Nicole Kistler that is moored on Seattle’s Duwamish River during April 2006. Native plants will be installed on an industrial barge, creating a temporary floating island full of ferns, shrubs and tree seedlings. The barge will be moored on the Georgetown side of the Duwamish River between the 1st Ave. S. Bridge and the 16th Ave S (South Park) Bridge.

Vital 5’s Island Project in Seattle

Many people don’t know that Harbor Island in Seattle was, for awhile, the world’s largest artificial island. It appears that it is now second to Rokko Island in Kobe harbor in Japan.
