Bridge Marks

Milwaukee, WI

Bridge-Marks is proposal for a series of installations inspired by their location along the Milwaukee River, in Milwaukee.

At each location, these installations will only visible when a lift bridge rises to animate the bridge lifting experience and increase public awareness of the river below, in an urban context.

“There is something magical about watching a bridge rise…and rather than focusing on the inconvenience of waiting — it would be nice to inspired the public to appreciate how often we pass over water on any given day…”

Bridge-Marks is currently in Conceptual Design Development with the Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW), in conjunction with the City as Living Laboratory and the WaterMarks Public Arts Master Plan.
