MoMA’s COSMO purifies water + powers summer music series

Calling all art lovers, music lovers and Earth lovers:

The MoMA PS1 gallery (dedicated to experimental art) now features an outdoor installation that mechanically uses plants and customized irrigation concepts to filter and purify 3,000 gallons of water, which, once purified, signals the device to glow at its center – providing pulsating light for Warm Up, the gallery’s summer concert series in Long Island City.


Designed by Andres Jacques/Office for Political Innovation, the concept was realized through the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, which spotlights emerging firms doing experimental work.
