DUMBO Underwater (Image courtesy of the artist, Eric Corriel)
Artist Eric Corriel has created a video installation in Brooklyn, New York that dramatizes and visualizes what that area might look like if the East River overflowed. His piece was inspired by imagining New York City under water as a result of sea-level rise. He has titled the project DUMBO Underwater in reference to the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn where it is set.
If you are in New York, you can view the installation live anytime between sundown and sunrise on 81 Front Street until October 13, 2010. The rest of us can enjoy this video below:
