Commissioned by Public Art Fund, The New York City Waterfalls was a temporary installation, running from 3 months in 2008. The four Waterfalls were located in the East River, New York, USA: one on the Brooklyn anchorage under Brooklyn Bridge; one between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn; one in Lower Manhattan at Pier 35; and one on Governors Island. The 30-40 m waterfalls were high structures, consisting of scaffolding, pumps, and hoses. By taking the form of a natural element while being man-made waterfalls, an ecological theme emerged calling for reflection on the power of and relation between man and nature.
