As AN wrote in January, New York City’s FIGMENT selected not one but two projects for this year’s annual art installation at Governors Island. But here’s the thing, neither of these pavilions are going to be realized without significant funds being raised. So, naturally, Kickstarter campaigns have been launched for the Billion Oyster Pavilion and the Organic Growth Pavilion.

Check out the two videos below to learn more about each project, and if you feel so inclined, maybe throw in some cash. The Organic Growth pavilion is trying to hit its $20,000 goal in 31 days and the Billion Oyster Pavillion hopes to raise $22,000 in the next two weeks.
