Molly Dilworth recently won a competition to paint a portion of Times Square's pedestrian-friendly streets with her concept 'Cool Water, Hot Island.' Known for her satellite visible rooftop paintings, she is continuing her crusade to color our world.

Beating out over 150 submissions, 'Cool Water, Hot Island' will almost literally drown the streets in serene sea hues. According to Fast Company, however, "the design is based on NASA’s infrared satellite data of Manhattan, which reveals the temperature variance across the city," not the sea.
