I read about this project in Networked_Performance and it looks very
interesting. Have a look:

WHERE: Smackmellon (NYC)
WHEN: July 20-26, 2010; daily, noon-2:00 pm

Join ecoarttech <http://ecoarttech.net/> (http://ecoarttech.net/) as they
live and work in Mary Mattingly’s *Flock
*, which will be exhibited as part of *Condensation of the Social*. Each day
from noon to 2pm ecoarttech will organize urban hikes (originating at Flock
House), exploring convergent ecologies in the DUMBO area in support of our
work Indeterminate Hikes <http://ecoarttech.net/IHimages.html>. In addition
they will conduct several evening events involving performance and
conversations engaging ecologies of the social, psychic, digital and
environmental. All events are open to the public.

*Flock House* is a project conceived and initiated by Mary Mattingly and
will be exhibited in June 2010 in collaboration with ecoarttech, Kadar Brock
and Stephanie Gonzalez-Turner, Ian Daniel, ecoarttech, Kim Holleman, Paul
Lloyd Sargent, and Tressie Word as part of the exhibition *Condensation of
the Social* curated by Sara Reisman @ Smackmellon (NYC), June 19 – August 1,

*flock house*

>From Smackmellon’s press release: “Having taken to the water in an
experiment in sustainability with The Waterpod in 2009, Mary Mattingly is
still focused on how we can respond to rising sea levels, this time by
testing the limits of living on land. Within Condensations Mattingly will
present a living prototype for Flock House, an airborne habitat that
imagines, projects, and adds another level onto the city’s skyline. Built on
materials that reference scaffolding, a construction material associated
with changing cities, Flock House augments city space, air space, and
questions air rights and functions as an observation deck with a view of
weather systems and avian migration.”
