FIGMENT is an annual participatory arts event on Governors Island in New York Harbor. The mission of FIGMENT is to provide a forum for community-based participatory art and experience. FIGMENT strives to build community among artists and participants, to foster the participatory arts in New York City, and to demonstrate a vision for the future of Governors Island as an international arts destination. FIGMENT is a community-based event organized and run by volunteers.
For FIGMENT '09 I expanded the Plastik Wev piece created for BETA Spaces during the fall of 2008. With the island setting, instead of the industrial Bushwick backdrop, Plastik Wev became a recycling awareness piece.
