In his artistís statement for the $15-million "Waterfalls" project to be forced on us from on high this summer at four points on the East River, Olafur Eliasson writes, "I believe that by seeing a work of art -- a waterfall, for instance -- we become co-producers of the work and its social context. Taking part in this type of collaboration requires that we take responsibility within the city that we love."
