Here’s a great installation by Marcos Zotes for the Nuit Blanche: Bring to Light New York 2011 fest. For CCTV/Creative Control, the artist has turned Brooklyn’s 10-story-high Milton Street water tower into an ever vigilant live eye. See the video for creepy, luminous blinking below.
Staring down from the highest pre-gentrification point Greenpoint, “CCTV/Creative Control seeks to question the oppressive mechanisms and discourses implemented in the city through the temporary appropriation of public space.” Timely commentary indeed. (Images and video: Marcos Zotes)
