Site Specific > Water Messaging System

Water messaging system is a teaching based interactive installation sponsored by Con edison and hosted by Socrates Sculpture Park as a innovation on artist/science education.

Carman planned and facilitated a series of workshops where children designed buoys with messages for seafarers and city ships, encouraging children to understand buoy culture and symbol making. The nearly 200 designed buoys were linked together and sent out on the river to circulate Socrates during a large spring festival, providing the experience of a site specific collaborative performance to teams of children and their families.
