Description

Reserve your seat on this contemporary “dazzle ship,” Flow Separation, a Public Art Fund and 14-18 NOW co-commission by New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach. Travel on the historic Fireboat John J. Harvey which has been transformed by the artist who took inspiration from fluid dynamics and the forms found in wake patterns left behind objects as they move through water. Dazzle camouflage, invented by British painter Norman Wilkinson during World War I, were painted onto ships to optically distort their forms, confusing enemy submarines tracking their distance, direction, and speed. With their geometric shapes, the dazzle designs were heavily indebted to both animal camouflage and avant-garde movements like Cubism, Futurism, and Vorticism. Thousands of vessels were dazzled in the U.K. and U.S., including in New York City at the Brooklyn Navy Yards.
