1.1 Interior NY Subway

by Patrick Keating

Bitzer's Interior New York Subway features a camera placed on one train, following another train as it winds through the shadows of a subway tunnel, all while illuminated by a third train running alongside on a parallel track. The resulting images are mesmerizingly abstract; the photographed train becomes an animated square, growing and shrinking as the camera approaches and recedes. (Excerpt from The Dynamic Frame, Chapter 1)
