I know it's not going to everyone's cup of tea, but I thought those who like art in all of it's glorious incarnations, might appreciate this.

I'm still deciding what to make of this, tantalizingly immersive and very haunting.

Enjoy :flop:

A Slice of Time on A Crowded Subway Platform: Stunningly Clear High Speed Video


Somewhere along the border of still photography and motion picture lies the stunning high speed footage shot on Adam Magyar’s self-constructed slit screen camera with homemade software. Over a span of just seconds, on a busy NYC subway platform, there is so much going on and Magyar slows it down so that we can see how much our eyes miss. Hundreds of lives, all on a different path, converge for a moment on a single subway platform, likely never to line up in that same way again.

Fabulous art. Thank you for sharing this - it impacted on me by slowing me down. I watched all three of the clips and I noted that in the German clip - the little girl who was running - to me she became a motif for spirit/energy/life as no one else was moving.

I noted two people who were caught picking their nose - well one might have been a scratch. On a positive note I saw people standing still and that created a sense of calm and thoughtfulness - even thought there were no smiling or laughing faces, perhaps that is why the child running made me feel good.

I may never have found this on my own so thank you again for sharing.

Much Peace - Amanda
