James Nares rode around NYC with a video camera in his truck and documented the city in slow poetic motion. There is a surprise every minute and they are breathtakingly beautiful, comic and human. There is something here that reminds me of my dad’s 3D images of our family – which literally froze us in time. Dickens believed nothing was more interesting than real life and Nares gives us this fact, slowed down frame by frame, in all its glorious messy, poetic chaos. This is the short version of a much longer museum piece of 61 minutes.
