“Watertower” is a multicolored plexiglass and steel sculpture of a water tower that is installed on the roof of a building in Brooklyn (making-of video). Brooklyn-based artist Tom Fruin built the sculpture out of local salvaged materials, including about 1000 scraps of plexiglass . The sculpture is lit by the sun during the day, and at night is illuminated by Arduino-controlled light sequences. “Watertower” will be on display through June 2013.
