Tide Flowers is a new site-specific water installation that registers the rising and falling tide on the East River at Domino Park. The pink flower petals bloom outward at high tide and draw closed as the tide ebbs.
The East River rises and falls nearly 5 feet every 5.5 hours, but our city infrastructure often keeps us removed from these daily cycles. The Tide Flowers connect us to the ocean, the moon, and the rhythm that is nature’s own.

ecoartspace was conceived in 1997 by Patricia Watts in Los Angeles. In 1999, Watts partnered with east coast curator Amy Lipton, operating as a nonprofit under the umbrella of SEE, the Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs in California. 2019 marked twenty years that Watts and Lipton have curated art and ecology programs, participating on panels and giving lectures internationally. Combined, they have curated over sixty art and ecology exhibitions, many outdoors in collaboration with artists creating site-specific works. They have worked with over one thousand artists from across the United States, and some internationally. Starting 2020, ecoartspace became an LLC membership organization based out of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
A project of the Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs since 1999
