'Descension' art installation (through Sept. 10)

If following today's political discourse feels like staring
If following today's political discourse feels like staring into a void, there's a pool in Brooklyn just for you. A giant continuously whirling pool, 26-feet in diameter, has been installed as a new art exhibit in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Titled "Descension," the piece is meant to "destabilize assumptions about the physical world," according to its curator, the Public Art Fund. Designed by the renowned London-based sculptor Anish Kapoor, the water spins in a vortex, seemingly disappearing into a hole in the ground. A railing encircles the pool, giving viewers the opportunity to lean in and peer into the cavity. 334 Furman St., Brooklyn, free, brooklynbridgepark.org (Credit: Brooklyn Bridge Park)
