New York Minute
Fulton Center & Dey Street Concourse
November 10, 2014 through Spring 2015
Commissioned by MTA Arts & Design, New York Minute is a large-scale 52-channel video installation by video artist Gabe Barcia-Colombo which will debut in at the newly opened Fulton Center, marking the inauguration of Arts & Design’s new Digital Arts Program.
The term 'New York Minute' first originated in Texas around 1967. It is a reference to the frenzied and hectic pace of New Yorkers' lives. The saying goes: A New Yorker does in an instant what a Texan would take a minute to do.
The installation will feature portraits of everyday New Yorkers doing everyday things in super slow motion. The installation seeks to point out the things we miss when we rush around the city in a frantic pace, altering our tempo and timing. In this new work, Gabriel Barcia-Colombo highlights the comical and sometimes poignant street interactions that help make New York the unique city it is.
