Just in case you didn't realize how cold it has gotten this week, a new interactive sign in Brooklyn Bridge Park can help you out with the forecast…] and give some answers to your most pressing moral dilemmas.
Created by multimedia artist David Crumley, the 12-foot by 9-foot DUMBO Reflector stands as a proud symbol of the neighborhood's artistic past and technology driven future, and you're invited to play with it.
In honor of the DUMBO Improvement District's 10th anniversary, the goal of this piece is to celebrate and connect this vibrant Brooklyn community. When probed, the Reflector can depict the local weather and traffic forecast, respond to Magic 8-Ball Style questions, and even react to various neighborhood hashtags with abstract patterns of color and light.
I designed the DUMBO Reflector to literally reflect the culture of DUMBO back onto itself,” said multimedia artist David Crumley. “At its core, community is the people and scenes that inhabit a place, and the digital interactive features of the sign provide a commentary on how we interact in our communities today, how dialogue takes place, and the need for physical space and art to bring us together.

The sign is scheduled to travel around the neighborhood throughout the upcoming months - go meet the DUMBO Reflector at the John Street section of the park while you can.
