Tidal Flowers

Tidal Flowers was a commissioned public art piece for Boston’s Fort Point Channel. It consisted of five large flowers made from post-consumer detergent bottles. As the tide filled the channel the flowers closed and sank beneathe the surface. As the tide ebbed the flowers slowly reopened. The largest flower was approximately twenty feet in diameter – Red Tide, the smallest – B.P. flower, was six feet across. At the conclusion of a a four month stretch which included two tropical storms, a noreaster’ and countless windy days the flowers were removed from the channel and sent back to be recycled.
