  • Thru|Lines Project Update: Jan 2012

    Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

    We’ve been hard at work shooting and editing. We have now followed 15 people out of a total of 24 and we’re starting post production. We’ve also completely redesigned and relaunched ThruLines.com.

    In the past few months we’ve been working with a number of artists and I’d like to take this time to talk about them a bit…

    Amanda Gookin has come on board as our composer and has created a beautiful piece to accompany the final installation. Please visit her at http://www.amandagookin.com.

    Ellie Balk (one of our subjects) is a muralist out of Brooklyn. We followed Ellie last summer during a live performance art piece she was performing for Sing For Hope in Prospect Park. Ellie is currently doing some wonderful original art for Thru|Lines. Check out Ellie’s work at http://www.elliebalk.com.

  • Announcing Thru|Lines – A Documentary Video Installation

    Saturday, March 26th, 2011

    Thru|Lines Documentary

    Thru|Lines

    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?

    If you are interested in applying to be a subject of this piece, please contact us at info@projectpause.com with a short bio and why you would like to be a part of this project.
