The Drift

2012 and ongoing


The Drift is an artist-run platform that explores bodies of water as a context, site, and material for art in public space.


Since 2012, we have worked with resident artists and collaborative groups to produce a range of projects and events on three converging rivers in Pittsburgh, PA.


The Drift is currently supported by the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University, the Pittsburgh Foundation, and the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council.

Organized by the Drift and co-presented with the Center for Urban Intervention Research (CUIR), H3O/OO3 took place on September 25th, 2015 beneath the Veteran's Bridge along the north shore of the Allegheny River, featuring a curated presentation of video projections, live performances, and interactive VR installations. The selected works and performances respond to the mediation of an environmental crisis in a post-internet age, exploring new embodiments of fluidity through trans-ontologies, generative and touch-sensitive surfaces, uncanny valleys and ever-flowing feeds.

H3O/OO3 was supported generously by the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, Awesome PGH, and Creative Capital. Special thanks to CUIR, Iontank, and Venture Outdoors.
