The documentation of “Portable Islands” project is the launch of a larger project where Mark Skwarek transform’s city vehicles into other objects. The first city department Mark is transforming is the NYC Sanitation department vehicles turned into floating islands. More specifically garbage trucks. For the little Berlin performance a mid sized car was chosen as a stand in for a garbage truck [Requests to the city of Philadelphia for a garbage truck were repeatedly rejected 😦 ]
Due to extreme last minute technical difficulties a shopping cart had to be used as a substitute for the car.
