Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder: Topsy-Turvy: A Camera Obscura Installation

Originally commissioned by the Madison Square Park Conservancy, “Topsy-Turvy: A Camera Obscura Installation,” reimagines one of the world’s earliest moving image devices as a 10-foot by 10-foot cylindrical viewing room. Created by Dumbo-based artists Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, Topsy-Turvy encourages visitors to enter the camera obscura’s “micro cinema” to catch a glimpse of inverted and abstracted images from the Empire Fulton Ferry section of the park near Jane’s Carousel, offering visitors spectacular views of the New York Harbor, Brooklyn Bridge and the Lower Manhattan Skyline in real time. The installation will remain on the boardwalk at Empire Fulton Ferry until October 27.

Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 10am-3pm.
