Born from construction debris, Ventifact addresses the city’s past and moves toward a future where the metropolis nurtures personal connections among inhabitants. Evocative of wind-sculpted sea caves and cliffs, it creates forms and voids that surprise and delight. Ventifact consists of three nested components: the Cloak, a shield opened to invite procession and unveil the Shell; the Shell, an enclosure for informal gatherings and events; and the Gem, an art installation inspired by the dynamism of nature. Ventifact celebrates conversations and shared experiences on the grassy retreat of Governors Island, creating a fleeting opportunity to explore an unexpected space.
