This week on the show my guest is Marie Lorenz. I visited her studio in Bushwick to talk about her ongoing project, the Tide and Current Taxi. For the project, Marie ferries people around the waterways surrounding New York city in her homemade rowboat, using the tidal currents to guide her. Marie documents these voyages on her website using photographs and a simple written narrative. These straightforward yet engrossing retellings  reveal a whole new way of looking at  New York City— a place that most people experience through it’s congested grids and street life.  Marie’s taxi also speaks to history in providing a first hand view of the waterways  that were the original source of New York’s political, cultural and economic power.  The Tide and Current Taxi has inspired much of Marie’s other work including drawings, sculptures and, of course, her handmade boats. I sat down with Marie to talk about her boat making, her first shipwreck and much more.
