Around the World in a NYC Taxi - Video
"Around the World in a NYC Taxi" is a video sculpture
in an actual decommissioned 2003 Ford Crown Victoria New
York yellow cab. What makes the Big Apple so vibrant are
the people. In a NYC cab, even though you are traveling
across town, you can talk with the driver who often comes
from one of the four corners of the world. Videos of my
interviews with various NY cab drivers and scenes of the
city will be projected from 6 projectors inside the cab
onto the vehicle's windows. The main film is a split feed
that plays in both front driver and passenger side windows.
The other windows show views of streets of the city taken
as if you were sitting in the cab. This allows the viewer
to walk around the cab and see these cabbies talk about
their profession, NY, and homelands.
