I See you!

In an age of instant communication there's something quirky and charming with the idea of a trans-Atlantic telescope that allows New Yorkers to 'see' Londoners and visa versa.

I love this project!

Imagine digging down through the earth to see the people on the other side.
Its not the idea of fabulist Jules Verne but is the brain child Paul St George, a 53-year-old artist based in London. The artist said he was quite taken "with the idea that if you just had a hole in the ground, and you’re looking down, you’d see up because the person you’d see is on the other side of the world," he said.
The project was timed to coincide with the 125th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge.
So step right up and take a peek. Wave, dance, write a message to those on the other side of the pond. But hurry - the Telectroscope will be in place at the Fulton Ferry Landing in Dumbo, Brooklyn, until June 15.
