Artist Tom Fruin has unveiled his latest multicolored mosaic creation in Brooklyn, New York. The installation ‘Watertower’ has transformed an ordinarily dull structure into one of Fruin’s iconic kaleidoscopic artworks. When the Watertower is switched on, it comes to life as the 1,000 stained glass windows glow throughout the evening. Each colorful piece is a salvaged plexiglass collected from around New York City.

Previously, the New York-based artist has designed a mosaic house-shaped installation, which was accompanied by sounds and performances by CoreAct.
