New Yorkers could see their English cousins across the pond Thursday without benefit of cable TV or video conferencing, courtesy of an unusual live optical hookup created by a conceptual artist with a fanciful tale of a long-lost tunnel.

An optical device called a “telectroscope” was placed at the Fulton Ferry Landing in Brooklyn and another one on the Thames River in London

In May-June 2008, artist Paul St George is exhibiting outdoor interactive video installations linking London and New York City in a fanciful simulated “telectroscope”. According to the artist’s invented back story, the device works using a transatlantic tunnel started by his great-grandfather, Alexander Stanhope St. George.[15][16][17] The producer of this spectacle was the Artichoke company, who previously staged the The Sultan’s Elephant in London.[18]
