'Translations' offers new view of New York

"Time Translations," an interactive installation by Nell Breyer, research affiliate at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies, is at the World Financial Center South Bridge (Liberty and West streets, New York, N.Y.) through Sunday, Oct. 16. Cameras capture the constant movements along the bridge in real time. The images are then processed by computer and projected as ephemeral drawings on the walls to the bridge. "Time Translations" is on view daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A reception for the installation will be held on Thursday, Sept. 22, from 5-7 p.m. at One World Financial Center Lobby (200 Liberty St., N.Y.). To attend, e-mail events@brookfieldproperties.com.
