Swoon (sitting in dress) and the Miss Rockaway Armada let their freak flags fly... 

As a wrap-up for her summer long rafting-as-art experience on the Mississippi river with her fellow boat punx—known as the MISS ROCKAWAY ARMADA—the elusive artist SWOON created the massive tour-de-force installation that is "Swimming Cities of the Switchback Sea" currently on display at DEITCH PROJECTS' new Long Island City space until October 19th. The go-to event of the summer, the installation mimics the makeshift junkyard composition of the Miss Rockaway rafts and functions as a fully developed walk-through environment. To up the ante, the entire Rockaway Armada raft fleet is moored at the docks just outside the gallery. HAVE A LOOK:
