NEW YORK The Statue of Liberty. Times Square. The Empire State Building. The Brooklyn Bridge. The yellow cabs. Today everyone photographs the “classics” and shares with the whole world the photos on social media. So, what happens when every day, all day and from multiple angles, these symbolic places are photographed by everyone? If we put together those images, photos and videos, we could see the whole (hi)story of a place. “Typologies of New York City” is a 57-second video made exactly in this way, using 1.272 photos of the city found on Instagram, selected and combined in a coherent animation by creative Sam Morrison (@SamTheCobra on social media).
NEW YORK A look at the powerful connection between a pair of outdoor ping pong tables, in the heart of New York City, and the unlikely group of people they’ve brought together, from homeless people to investment bankers to gangbangers. Rain or shine, they’ll be there. At “The Tables”. A beautiful, very beautiful, 15-minute documentary by Jon Bunning, filmmaker and art director based in Brooklyn, NY. Watch the short film here!
NEW YORK It took three months of calculations to build this reduced model of the Manhattan district, using old and broken electronic parts. Who made this work? Zayd Menk, apparently a very young artist, a 17-year-old student who lives in Zimbabwe. He made this artwork for his school art project.
