Watertower, a tribute to New York water tanks

If you have visited New York, or even simply watching a movie set there, surely you have realized the importance of water deposits in the city skyline. Tom Fuin, a Brooklyn artist, also realized that, and wanted to give them a tribute to the Neoryoquino water tanks with Watertower.

As for shape and size, it is a water tank to use, which can be seen in almost all the roofs of the Big Apple, since the pressure of its supply network is low and is more ecological and economical raise water with a pump every time the tank is emptied, have a pump running every time someone opens a tap.

However, this is not just any deposit, but An authentic work of art.

To make the large window that covers all surfaces, and that the sun illuminates every morning with its rays, the artist used the remains of plexiglas throughout the city, from Chinatown to the demolition of the Astoria, thanks in part to a donation of Build it Green! NYC.

At night, it lights up every so often thanks to a home automation lighting system, which is activated during the early hours of the night and morning, producing a beautiful picture while its colorful silhouette is cut in front of the beautiful Brooklyn bridge and sunset.
