Danish artist Jeppe Hein has just added 18 brand-new sculptures to Brooklyn Bridge Park. This innovative work is set in a public space, and welcomes visitors to engage with it in the most playful way. Walk among seven-foot-tall water-jet walls, set on a timer so you don’t get drenched; toy with Mirror Labyrinth; and relax on Modified Social Benches. Enjoy

Figment NYC ´s City of Dreams Pavilion has recently welcomed the architectural firm BanG Studio and their designed to be towed out to New York Harbor at the end of the summer, where it will function as a reef for oysters to grow. Very interesting concept you should experience personally.

 

Teresita Fernández, “Fata Morgana”

The series of reflective gold canopies hanging over the paths in Madison Square Park takes it title from the term describing a mirage shimmering along the horizon line where water or land meets the sky. Similarly, the suspended disc-shaped forms which make the piece are perforated. It allows the sky to bleed through a mirror view of the ground below. Truly exceptional art in NYC
