    These observation scopes provide fixed views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline in which the water is overlaid with letters from the many alphabets that are used in the over 167 languages of New York City. Addressing issues of immigration, assimilation, and the remarkable diversity of this city, the artist has made the East River a symbol of multilingual communication. <PREVIOUS | NEXT>
