The Swimming Cities Collective is comprised of wonderfully crazy folks who create elegant art-boats out of found garbage (mostly taken from dumpsters on the streets of NYC) and then sail them on the open seas. As io9 put it, "The Swimming Cities are something out of Terry Gilliam's daydreams, part Mad Max fantasy and part Waterworld reality."
We need a lot more of this sort of thing at this juncture point.
Last year, JSHNYC reported on a group of "urban pirates" living on an abandoned ferry, which also sounds like something right up our primitive alley.
