The Color of Water

The Color of Water
This is one of the panels on display at The High Line, an elevated park in New York City. Artist Spencer Finch photographed the water in the Hudson once every minute from a tugboat drifting along Manhattan's west side. The color in each pane of glass was based on a single pixel point. There are three panels.
You can read more about the project [here].
