Dead Horse Bay I, 2018




This piece of driftwood came from the shoreline of a small water body off Barren Island between the Gerritsen Inlet and Rockaway Inlet in Brooklyn. It was the site of Dutch tidal mills in the 17th century, and given its name sometime in the late 1850's, when horse-rendering still surrounded the beach. The shore is peppered with beach glass, broken tiles, leather shoe soles, rusty metal, and horse bones. Evidence of when it was once dotted by more than two dozen horse-rendering plants, fish oil factories and garbage incinerators.
