Time to talk about making waves.
In conjunction with Project 0, 50 celebrities created ocean-inspired art for the La Mer Wave Walk installation in New York City just in time for World Oceans Day on June 8th. The list of celebrities, also known as “wave makers,” involved with the project includes Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, and Tali Lennox. The majority of the installations are located in Manhattan with a few in Queens and Brooklyn.
After work a few days ago, I took a stroll down to the corner of West 27th and 7th Ave at FIT to see Tali Lennox’s wave, titled “Harmony.”
Lennox’s wave is inspired by a trip she took to upstate New York. She contrasts New York City’s chaos with upstate New York’s natural setting using what appear to be tall, brown fir trees painted on the inside and outside of the wave.
I hope I have some time to check out the rest of these installations before they disappear on June 21st to be auctioned off for charity. They’re such a great visual reminder of how important it is to conserve our natural environment.
