Located on the roof of 20 Jay St. in DUMBO, Brooklyn, Watertower by Tom Fruin is part of The Water Tank Project, an initiative by Word Above the Street, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering environmental and social advocacy through art and technology.
The gorgeous photo above was shot by Robert Banat and really shows off the stained glass effect of the sculpture. Below, my more modest efforts were taken from the Manhattan Bridge bike path.
Constructed from scrap plexi, the sculpture is illuminated by the sun during the day and by sequenced light at night. To see the full effect, check out the live cam.
Tom Fruin was born in Los Angeles and now lives and works in Brooklyn. His [really interesting] work often incorporates found and scrap materials.
