8-10-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways + 1 – Voice Tunnel Edition

The Photo Challenge this week is “One Shot-Two Ways”. When I read that I guessed it was an editing challenge but I was wrong. In reality the challenge is: “capture two images — a horizontal and a vertical version — of the same scene or subject.”

The Summer Street program is sponsoring an art installation on three August Saturdays (the 3rd, 10th and 17th, from 7am – 1pm) in the Park Avenue underpass which runs from 32nd Street to 41st Street. The work is called Voice Tunnel and it is by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. We tried to see it last weekend (arriving at 10:30) but the wait was almost 40 minutes and we had things to do.  This week I showed up at 8am and the wait was only 15 minutes so in I went.

Here are my horizontal and vertical views (or landscape and portrait if you prefer).

  3. This is interesting! I’ve always thought that it would be neat to walk through one of the NY tunnels. Always wondered, for instance, if I was walking through the Holland Tunnel would I be more cognizant that it goes so far underground since I’ve never felt the sensation of going downhill or uphill in the tunnel, yet you must since it’s about 90 feet below the surface.

    Read about this in the New Yorker, where an observer of the installation was saying that this was the type of thing that could only happen in NY. It is the type of thing that makes me wish for the days when I traveled to NYC regularly, but it saddens me a bit to think that there aren’t other places where this could happen if people had the vision and insight and commitment to the arts. And, saying that reminds me that I need to get off my duff soon and go see a light (though not light + voice) installation (Swarm Street, Vito Acconci) through a tunnel, along a walking/bike path, in my own city.

    • Thank you for the comment. I don’t buy the only in New York stuff. I have seen some amazing art installations in a lot of different cities as well as in the middle of the desert. I do think we do a better job of getting the word out and creating excitement, though.
      How was the installation?
