My department at SVA collaborated on the project stillspotting nyc with the Architecture, Urban Design, and Urban Planning programs at Columbia University and the Guggenheim Museum exploring aspects of stillness and movement and noise and silence in New York City.
My video, Anything Below Chambers, was selected to be presented with the project. For the video, I invited seven New Yorkers to explore the area below Chambers Street to help in my search of silence. Each participant took 20 photographs in an hour. These photos, along with interviews about their experiences, show the ongoing struggle to find stillness in the city.
