Slow Down, West Side Highway (2007)

A slowly composing mosaic-style mural of a fast-paced New York City moment.

Description

A fast paced New York City moment (with taxi cabs zooming down the street, pedestrians hurrying down the block) is drawn by a computer in a mosaic style similar to the one found in the subway system. By slowly placing the tiles across the six-screen setup, this mural-sized video installation is able to considerably alter this rushed moment, encouraging a moment of slowness and contemplation.
