WATERSHED Red Hook, a large scale video installation by internationally recognized Brooklyn artist Anita Glesta, projected in commemoration of the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.

WATERSHED is a moving information "billboard" that projects global climate change directly into public space. A visually striking projection, WATERSHED's hypnotic images of flooding and pirarucu, a newly revived Amazonian fish, once at the point of extinction, is uplifting and immersive. Sited on the face of the National Theater of London on the Thames embankment, it encourages people to engage with climate change as they watch entrancing images of colorful fish.
