The Jamaica Bay Pen Project is a collection of refurbished and functional writing pens, all sourced from the shores of New York’s Jamaica Bay [see map above]. Each pen [or marker] has been cleaned, sanitized, and modified with a new working ink cartridge - thus restoring a formerly disposable product, later seafaring piece of flotsam, and ultimately beached debris to again serve its intended purpose of inscribing words and lines to paper.
