The River Cube Project as Sculpture, Experimental Space and Museum. The River Cube Project simultaneously functions as a sculpture, studio, laboratory and museum – a space for exploration, experimentation, co-creation and innovation.
The River Cube Project Sculpture is made of metal pipe with a “skin” of old aerial film displaying an entire river system. Much like Robert Smithson’s “non-sites,” the image of the river in the film represents the concept of a river — as a holding space for interpreting the ideas, conversations, stories and scientific studies that will develop through this Project. The cube sits atop a custom-built floatation system and will be joined by another watercraft equipped with paddles, pedals and sail.
