Tauba Auerbach | Dazzle Ship Camouflage in NYC

Above Publicity shots of an experimental dazzle camouflage scheme, newly designed by American artist Tauba Auerbach (2018), and applied to a decommissioned fireboat, the John J. Harvey. In an on-going World War I Centenary event sequence that began in 2014, this is the last of a series of ships to be dazzle-painted. The earlier ones have been British, and were unveiled at UK harbors. This is the first American ship, launched at a US location. Go here for additional photographs and detailed information.
