As you may or may not know, Pop Up Flea London (PUFLDN) touches down in St. James on the weekend of October 11th. Same great Pop Up Flea taste, different island. In the process of planning the first ever international Pop Up Flea, we’ve come to know several characters, hustlers and ne’er-do-wells who have been cushioning our arrival in London.
One such character is James Bowthorpe: artist, builder, editor of The Rig Out, and official Master Of Interiors for PUFLDN. Over the last two years, while we’ve been thinking about heading to London, James has been working on a project here in New York. It’s called the Hudson River Project.
In James’s words:
At the core of Hudson River Project is a simple idea: Build a boat out of Manhattan’s waste, take it to the source of the Hudson River – Lake Tear of the Clouds, high in the Adirondack Mountains – and row the boat back to Manhattan.
