mandi FUNG and courtney OLMSTED: Water Camping seeks to bring an experience atypical to an urban lifestyle (to camp, to live in a temporary structure outdoors) to the New York City waterfront. It is to be considerate of both ends of the spectrum (the urban and the outdoors) as one is not fully outside of the city. Elements of both are cross-fertilized to create a new understanding of the urban environment. In addition to that, the Water Camping experience is unique because it takes something traditionally grounded (to camp, to make an encampment) and replaces the ground surface with a variable element, the surface of the water.
