FLOCK HOUSE is a public art project and mobile living system designed around migratory patterns of humans over land, sea and air. The Flock House Project is a four-month experiment in sustainable urban nomadism. Flock House units depends on the surrounding community and is at the same time self-sufficient, providing, collecting, and growing its own food, power, and water. The structure will dock at locations within each of NYC’s five boroughs, each time housing a different “resident” during daytime hours.
From June 15 – June 30, it will be docked in Queens, at the Fountain of the Planets, in Flushing Meadow Corona Park. During this time, Ghana ThinkTank will work with Queens Museum of Art and a variety of Corona organizations and residents, using the Flock House as a base from which to continue an exploration they began last summer into laws that affect the different waves of Immigrants that have settled in the neighborhood. To submit Illegal Laws you have encountered, visit www.ghanathinktank.org/ILLEGALLAWS
