“The New York City Waterfalls” illuminated by Boca Flasher LED lighting systems
The New York City Waterfalls exhibition was commissioned by the Public Art Fund, which is organizing the public art work in collaboration with City of New York. (For further details, see www.publicartfund.org)
The spectacle will be one of four manmade waterfalls built on the shores of the city's East River. The water will course over scaffolding 90 to 120 feet high, from June 26 to Oct. 15, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, and will be illuminated after sunset. The locations will be the Brooklyn base of the Brooklyn Bridge, Governor's Island, Pier 35 in Lower Manhattan, and between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn.
Leading the construction team was Tishman Construction Corporation, a privately-held firm headquartered in New York City with operating subsidiaries located across the United States. Tishman Construction worked with the Public Art Fund, engineers and contractors to help create the installation. Lighting designer was Jaros Baum & Bolles. Enterprise Lighting was the lighting representative firm.
Boca SBL-HO Brick Lights were selected for their ability to withstand wet conditions, very easy plug and go installation, brightness of the LEDs and on board power supply and DMX.
“Boca is honored to be involved as the lighting product manufacturer in the Public Art Funds’ newest monumental art installation,” said David Urban, VP of Sales. “We also pride ourselves in that our LED lighting products were able to meet the design challenges and contribute to the overall effect the artist envisioned.”
