Street by James Nares is currently on view at The Met. This clip only provides a small glimpse of the magic, intrigue and personality that the artwork possesses. I never thought watching a stranger do something as mundane as typing a text or carrying groceries could ever be so captivating or nuanced, but Nares in a span of a week in 2011, manages to perfectly encapsulate the diverse fabric of people that make up New York City, and makes every moment just as dramatic as the next. In his own 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.” This piece is a must see.
