In­flat­able sea mon­ster over­takes Philly ware­house

The Progress-Index - - AMUSEMENTS -

PHILADEL­PHIA — A gi­ant sea mon­ster has taken over a build­ing at Philadel­phia’s Navy Yard, but only tem­po­rar­ily.

The in­flat­able sculp­ture ti­tled “Sea Mon­sters HERE” is at a rust­ing ware­house called Build­ing 611. It fea­tures huge pur­ple ten­ta­cles burst­ing out of win­dows and reach­ing from the rooftop. The 40-foot­long cre­ations sway in the breeze, cre­at­ing the sense of a huge liv­ing crea­ture.

It was cre­ated by U.K.-based artists Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrel­las. They were in­vited to in­stall the work as part of a col­lab­o­ra­tive project be­tween Group X, a col­lec­tion of lo­cal artists and or­ga­niz­ers, and the Navy Yard.

It’s on view un­til Nov. 16.

Once the na­tion’s first ship­yard, the Navy Yard is now a wa­ter­front busi­ness cam­pus home to 165 com­pa­nies.
