Bending Sounds by Tim Sessler

This beautiful, eerie video is making its way around the NYC blogosphere today. Freelance filmmaker Tim Sessler sways and swerves his camera through the subway, floating the viewer through space like a ghost. The ambient sounds of the subway are familiar, yet dream-like, magnifying the haunting quality of this video. Also, since when is the subway lit so beautifully? Bravo Mr. Sessler, you are a magician!

Miami Art Basel 2011 – Leandro Erlich, “Global Express”

I found this awesome video piece by Leandro Erlich on the showroom floor at Art Basel. The video is a loop of views outside subway car windows from all over the world. Each clip is stitched together to look like one seamless trip. Even cooler is that the LCD TV is made to look like the window of a subway car, completing the experience.

Check out Leandro’s official site.

Subway Art Twofer

Here I am in Union Square station. I follow my ears to the bluegrass music I hear on the yellow line platform. As I get closer I realize it is my friend Maggie along with the guitarist from her band Spirit Family Reunion. I say hello and start filming, figuring this would be the perfect opportunity to give them some publicity and get some awesome bluegrass up on the blog. After I finish filming the first song, I realize a man had walked up behind me and was sketching the musical duo. I ask him if I could film him as he draws and he says yes. And so here is my video of caricature artist Kenly Dillard sketching Spirit Family Reunion as they jam out in the subway. Enjoy!

The End is Near… the J Train

It is hard to tell what is performance art and what is not in Bushwick nowadays. Filmmaker/performer Matthew Silver further blurs this line with his performances under the J train. In the video above, called “Heartpocalypse,” Silver suits up as his sign-wielding, street corner lunatic alter-ego and preaches messages of doom and love to the (surprisingly calm) people of Broadway. It is a trip to see him and his Aztec deities causing a ruckus in various familiar spots under the J (especially if you live in that area, like myself).

You can find more videos and some still photos of Silver’s performances on his blog,
