Bling Boat - NY Times

Per the Sunday NY Times Men’s Style Magazine (September 16, 2007):

Part floating multimedia art installation, part “Pimp My Ride,” the thoroughly customized 1977 Correct Craft ski boat is a nautical interpretation of Chicano low-rider culture by the Chicago-based artist Dzine. Working with the high-end car outfitter LP MotorSports, he tricked out the “Dnipro” with 22 speakers, 9 TV screens, 8 amps, state-of-the-art Pioneer D.J. equipment, a laser light show and a smoke machine. The craft made its maiden voyage at this year’s Venice Biennale in the Ukrainian Pavilion and is set to sail again on Oct. 9 in Rome, christened by a performance by DJ Solal and Filip Wauters.
