So, when a tipster sent photos a little while ago of this rotating drill sticking of Fulton Ferry Landing near the Brooklyn Bridge, we were able to put two and two together and figure out that it's the Brooklyn end of a weird London-NYC art installation called the Telectroscope. Some verbiage about the project by Paul St. George says it's a "public media project is an amazing optical device that allows viewers in Brooklyn to see all the way to London." This may mean there's live video at both ends of the other end. The installation is part of the Brooklyn Bridge Anniversary celebration that starts this week. Sadly, the Telectroscope only will be there through June 15, going away before Olafur Eliasson's waterfall under the Brooklyn Bridge gets turned on in July.
