Times Square drowns in a climate art exhibit

Unmoored, a “mixed reality experience” by conceptual artist Mel Chin, “imagines a future in which New York is underwater, as projected by climate scientists,” according to the exhibit’s website.

The exhibit has two parts: The first is Wake, a 60-foot long sculpture that evokes the skeleton of a ship; affixed to the bow is a 21-foot tall sculpture of the 19th-century opera star Jenny Lind (she was a figurehead on many ships at the height of her popularity)

The second part of the exhibit is an interactive video courtesy of Unmoored, an app developed with Microsoft. Visitors can use HoloLens (Microsoft’s virtual reality headset) or stand at a Wi-Fi kiosk and download the app to their smartphones—it’s too big to download without an internet connection.
