By the New York Times’ estimate, there are some 12,000–17,000 water towers currently in use within New York City. Frequent hosts for sediment and even harmful bacteria, Ivan Navarro has found a new substance for filling these ubiquitous components of the city skyline: neon light. The material is the Chilean artist’s preferred medium, and in a new installation in Madison Square Park he has rendered the words “we” “me”, and a ladder on the interiors of three separate water towers.
