"8th Ave/35th St, November 02" video projection
"8th Ave/35th St 02" photographs
Both - photographs and the 3 screen video projection - were taken in the same - title giving- place at New York´s Eight Avenue/ 35th Street , photographs in june and video in november 2002.
The video (20 min. loop) is influenced by very bright daylight resulting spectacular contrasts of black backgrounds and light. People, vehicles and color come together to a long floating movement in slow motion with the sound of the city.
The photographs catch a moment in the neverending stream of urban activity and become very much an unadulterated portrait of theit time.
