Olafur Eliasson, the Danish–Icelandic artist known for installing a massive sun in the Tate Modern, has just announced his plans to create a series of free standing waterfalls in the East River. The waterfalls will rise 60-70 feet in the air and be visible from the area around the Seaport, from Brooklyn Heights, and from the Governors Island Ferry.

The waterfall project will coincide with a retrospective of Eliasson’s work at the Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1. The exhibition, is currently at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
