DUMBO Underwater: Artist Visualizes New York City Under Water
Amanda Reed, 30 Sep 10

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:


For more visualizations of New York City after the seas rise, see the Rising Currents exhibit at MoMA.

Certainly makes me think about sea levels rising but will it have the same effect on passers by I wonder?
