I travel frequently to New York on business and have become obsessed with the “Wave Walk,” fifty-four identically shaped ocean wave sculptures sprinkled around the boroughs of New York City. Each four-foot wave has been created by various artists, entrepreneurs or celebrities.
I am trying to see as many as I can before they are auctioned off for the charity We Are Project Zero. I love that these funky, beautiful sculptures are going to ultimately help clean up and protect oceans.
Keith Richards’ wave is a solid black sculpture that curls into a skull that perfectly reflects his off-beat personality and edgy style. Margaret Zhang’s is an ethereal pink homage to “The Birth of Venus” and all that is feminine, large floating pearl included.
And Vivienne Westwood? Her wave is a messy collection of plastic cups, smashed beer cans, torn fishing nets, nylon rope and cigarette lighters.
If you can’t get to New York before the auction, check out the enormous amount of images on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc. by typing #project0 or #wavewalk. If you want to see them in person, visit http://www.weareprojectzero.org to view the details of each wave/artist and corresponding map.
