• Announcing Thru|Lines – A Documentary Video Installation

    March 26th, 2011

    Thru|Lines Documentary


    24 New Yorkers. On 24 Screens. 1 Day.

    Thru|Lines is a ‘day-in-the-life-of’ documentary with a twist. The viewer will experience 24 people simultaneously on 24 small screens.

    It’s part documentary and part art installation.

    Our goal is to find an art gallery or museum that will serve as a home to this project.

    We hope to convey the moments of humanity and synchronicity of our 24 subjects as they live a day of their lives, creating, working, and traveling. Throughout the piece, we intend to sync up moments when everyone is riding the subway or eating, catching them in the moments that we all experience regardless of our status in society.

    We are shooting entirely on Canon DSLR’s and we’ve painstakingly followed the lives of 5 people so far:

    A US State Senator as he deals with the closing of a hospital while attending multiple Chinese New Year celebrations.
    A photographer as he shoots the cover of his own self published magazine.
    A theater director as she oversees the final day of set construction for her staging of Macbeth.
    An enterprising young woman as she loads her food truck and makes fresh juice on the hottest day of 2010.
    A sensual dancer as she preps and rehearses a self-choreographed dance piece.

    Who will be next?
