We’re Floating: An Interactive Poetry Walk with Artist and Poet Jon Cotner

We’re Floating is a new interactive 45 minute walk designed by artist and poet Jon Cotner that takes place on July 14th. Each hour he revives the ancient, endangered practices of walking and talking. His interactive walks through Rockefeller Park in Battery Park City combine dialogue, observation, and movement for the sake of worldly encounter. The work of Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō is mapped onto the landscape and put into play, bringing everyone closer to this floating world, Recent projects have been celebrated by Bookforum, Good, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal. He is coauthor of Ten Walks/Two Talks, and teaches at Pratt Institute. Free and open to the public. Walks begin at Poets House at 4:00pm, 5:00pm, 6:00pm and 7:00pm
