Floating Islands

Way back in the last century I lived in Florida when the artist Christo created his Surrounded Islands project in Miami’s Biscayne Bay. So, I was pleased to hear about his new project called The Floating Piers. For sixteen days during June 2016, Christo will install 200,000 brightly covered, floating cubes to create a walkway around Italy’s Lago Iseo. The yellow fabric will also cover pedestrian streets in two lakeside towns. There’s more about The Floating Piers on the project website.
