I’ve recently been drawn to the idea of stained glass; in particular, how light passes through color and can be completely transformative. Its something we don’t get to see much in the modern world, and a craft that seems to be fading away. I saw this posting of NY artist Tom Fruin who recently did an installation on the Brooklyn skyline in DUMBO and was taken back. Using scraps and salvaged plexiglass and steel, Tom has created a spectacular Watertower sculpture that will also be accompanied by daily light shows starting at dusk. This piece can be viewed from Lower Manhattan, FDR Drive, and the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. You all know what I’ll be doing this weekend! (via design you trust)
