FLOATING ART

SOS (Safety Orange Swimmers), by Ann Hirsch and Jeremy Angier | A+J Art+Design

SOS is composed of 20+ figures painted in “Safety Orange” and swimming with salvaged black inner tubes used as personal floatation devices. SOS invokes the Fort Point Channel Basin as a metaphor for the seas across which people have always traveled in search of shelter, freedom, prosperity and safety; seas in which they have often lost their lives. The Swimmers reference the world’s refugees and migrants, and the long history of global migration on which our city and nation are largely built.
