The Kid Should See This

James Nares’ STREET

Watch more with these video collections:

With a soundtrack by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, artist James Nares’ STREET is an experiment in people watching with the benefit of slow motion. From the New York Times

Mr. Nares’s 61-minute video sits in a curious place, somewhere between still and moving images. It has the uncanny look of a 3-D slide show or some hybrid of photography and film; it also calls to mind the stereographic viewers that were popular in the 19th century. Shown in slow motion, the people Mr. Nares filmed on the streets of Manhattan look like cutouts placed into deep pockets of space.

Of the project (clip shown above), Nares said, “I wanted the film to be about people. All it needed were magical moments, and there are enough of those happening every moment of any given day.”

Thanks, Tallulah, Jasper & Jenni.
