New Documentation Released of Jacob Rivkin's Ethereal Art Intervention, Floating Archives

December 18, 2018

As Jacob Rivkin wraps up his year as PPEH Artist-in-Residence, we are thrilled to announce the release of this new short film by Aidan Un documenting Rivkin's Floating Archives, a public art intervention launched on two Saturdays in September of 2018.


Floating Archives now lives on—on land—as a five-minute film installation in the Independence Seaport Museum's O.T.W. exhibit, on display from October 2018 to September 2019. This stand-alone compilation of the animations from the public performance on the Schuylkill River is organized spatially - taking the viewer from Bartram's Garden to the Fairmount Water Works.

We are delighted to see this project floating on to new audiences in Philadelphia and look forward to seeing where it will anchor next!
