Situated on a busy corner in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, DKLB BKLN enlisted Uprise Art to bring elements of the 36-story building’s metal facade to human scale. Artist Christina Watka pulled inspiration from the industrial palette and designed her latest site-specific “Murmuration Series” installation in a pattern that echoes the ebb and flow of the area.

“This specific installation mimics the patterns of people walking through the city streets. The installation travels along a 17-foot wall like a constellation or a herd of animals.”
“Some pieces stand alone, some follow a flock, you can also spot pairs coupled off away from the crowd. The tiny porcelain shapes reflect the activity on the street - people coming home from work or families congregating on the edge of a street waiting for the light to turn.”
