Brooklyn-based artist Tom Fruin dreamt up this marvelous multicolored plexiglass and steel sculpture made out of local salvage materials. Called “Watertower,” this marriage of design and engineering resulted in a beautiful, unique piece. Like its real, functional counterparts, this watertower has been mounted on the roof of a building where it can be seen from many different angles. By day, the sun lights up the stained glass-like panels, while at night artificial lights pulse around it in a specific sequence. The installation will be in place through June 2013, so check it out if you will be in the Brooklyn area.
