Urban Experiences - the city from different perspective
The Lost Tribes of New York City from Carolyn London on Vimeo.
The lost tribes of New York City is a lovely film created by Andy and Carolyn London. By making objects on the street (such as public phone, sewer lid and hydrant) come alive, and using the voice from interviewing different races of people in NYC, this animation shows different perspective of the city.
SURFACE : A film from underneath from TU+ on Vimeo.
Another film I choose for this topic is about the perspective underneath. It's very fun that you never think about how things look like from the perspective you are not used to, especially the city itself. "Surface" is actually from a thesis project "UND-VIS"(Underground Vision Experiments) of a Parsons MFA student Varathit Uthaisri. The project is about to explore the unique vision from underground.
