SeaGlass Carousel at the Battery Conservancy

The SeaGlass Carousel’s startling underwater theme echoes its location on the site of the first home of the New York Aquarium, at the edge of the New York Harbor near the old Battery. The spiraling structure is constructed with stainless steel and glass, forming a shell whose interior provides a white screen for the Carousel's underwater projections. Using the paradigm of the magic lantern, the Smart Glass changes from clear to opaque as the ride begins, dimming the space to capture the experience of diving under water. As the carousel spins, the interior digital projections cast moving images on the building’s shell, animating the voyage.

The SeaGlass Carousel is scheduled to open on Thursday, August 25, 2015.
