NEW YORK (AP) - A new public art installation in Brooklyn is titled “Please Touch the Art” - and it really means it.

The work by Danish artist Jeppe Hein (YEP’-eh hyn) features three distinct spaces.

One is a series of “rooms” formed by jets of water shooting 7-foot-high “walls” that appear and disappear.

The Mirror Labyrinth features mirror-like stainless steel elements of varying heights that create multiple reflections of the landscape.

The third is called Modified Social Benches. It turns the traditional park bench into whimsical sculpture forms. Sixteen orange-red benches twist, curve and bend in response to the park’s environment.

The installation opens Sunday and runs through April 17, 2016, at the waterfront Brooklyn Bridge Park. It runs from south of the Manhattan Bridge to Pier 6.
