James Nares' Street

James Nares STREET
June 2 – November 15, 2012

STREET is an unscripted 61-minute high definition video filmed by artist James Nares over one week in September 2011. The final video (watch two clips here)  is a mesmerizing experiment in the nuance and beauty of everyday people and people-watching; providing a global view that extends beyond the streets of New York where it was filmed: from Battery Park to the furthest reaches of Upper Broadway, and West Side to East Side in Nares’ personal homage to actualité films. In Nares’ words, “I wanted the film to be about people. All it needed were magical moments, and there are enough of those happening every moment of any given day.” The soundtrack for the film was composed and performed by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore.
