Stained Plexiglas Water Tower Illuminates The Sky In Dazzling Colour

There are approximately 1000 pieces of salvaged New York City plexiglas mounted on the steel structure of artist Tom Fruin’s newest sculpture, an 8m by 3m patchwork water tower set atop a collection of artist’s studios in Brooklyn. It’s called, simply, Watertower.

Beginning June 7, the tower will be lit from within by digitally controlled light sequences playing from dusk till morning for a full year. A welcome addition to Brooklyn’s skyline, Watertower will be visible from Lower Manhattan, FDR Drive, and the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges at night. [AnimalNY]
