“I really like these instances where ingenuity is applied against brute strength… I like this boat specifically because it is a benevolent machine.” —Tauba Auerbach

Information on visiting (including signing up for a free ride!) Tauba Auerbach’s dazzled fireboat, the John J. Harvey, entitled Flow Separation, is here. It will be on view at sites around New York through May 12, 2019. This behind-the-scenes video from Public Art Fund walks us through the process of design and execution of this ambitious project.

Flow Separation is co-commissioned by Public Art Fund, and 14-18 NOW, the United Kingdom’s arts program commemorating the centenary of World War I. Since 2014, 14-18 NOW has commissioned four Dazzle Ships throughout the U.K. Auerbach’s dazzled vessel is the first U.S.-based ship and the final vessel in the series before the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on November 11, 2018.
