This ain’t no Christo umbrella party. POP POP BANG, a new collaboration between creative director Anna Burns and the photographer Thomas Brown features a series of photo imprinted umbrellas popping open — get it? get it? — arranged on a tiered stand.

The Artist Build Collaborative has something nifty in mind for the troubled Brooklyn Queens Expressway. The dynamic, interractive installation Silent Lights will light up a pedestrian path under the B.Q.E. in Red Hook with a series of “gates.” Their glow will respond directly to the amount of the traffic noise.
