CALIFORNIA WAKING UP ON THIS MONDAY MORNING. THE TIME NOW IS 5:22. THERE IS SOMETHING FLOATING IN SPACE THAT LOOKS LIKE A PRETZEL ON THE SOMETHING STRANGE FLOATING IN THE WATER IN NEW YORK. I FEEL LIKE I AM AT THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION WITH ALL THE MOTORS WE HAVE AROUND HERE. THEY HAVE “STRANGER THINGS” IN SPACE. MAY BE SO. INFLATABLE THINGS WITH ALL THESE MOTORS. NEW YORKERS WALKING BY THE EAST RIVER WILL SEE SOME L.E.D. LIGHTS SHAPED LIKE A PLUS SIGN. THE ART INSTALLATION IS MEANT TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ABOUT WATER QUALITY. THE FLOATING PLUS SIZE USES TECHNOLOGY THAT CHANGES THE COLOR BASED ON THE WATER CONDITIONS. MEANS IT IS A FOR SWIMMING, PINK MEANS A PATHOGEN LEVELS HAVE RISEN TO UNSAFE LEVELS. THE LIGHTS ALSO CHANGE BRIGHTNESS, FREQUENCY AND SHARPNESS BASED ON OXYGEN AND PH LEVELS. INTERESTING. THEY SAY THEY HOPE THE HARPIES EDUCATE PEOPLE ABOUT THE CLEANLINESS OF THE WATERS AROUND THEM.
