DUMBO Underwater

Artist, designer, programmer Eric Corriel has created a video installation of the East River submerging DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Brooklyn Overpass). Corriel designed DUMBO Underwater in response to predictions of rising sea levels in New York City.  For example, the Columbia University Center for Climate Systems Research has projected a "five inch (5") further rise" in sea level in the city between 2000 and 2030.
