STREAMING

STREAMING Streaming is a video about the flow that overwhelm the whole subway. It's aim is to show a raw and omniscient view of the subway as it is everyday, for everyone, as everyone can see or can't see it. The picture is separated in four windows, one in each corner of the screen. The two on the top show a constant flow of people form the outside of the subway itself. The one on the top left corner shows incoming subways seen from the track and the one on the top right corner show people passing by on a speedwalk. The two windows on the bottom of the screen show an inside view of the subway. On the bottom left corner, the subway is seen through its own window, the outside (the tunnels or the city when the train pass outside) as well as the inside since we can see people in the reflection of the glass. On the bottom right corner, the view is focussing on details, a hand holding a pole in the train, hands opening the doors… Those four views are connected to each others and when something happens in a view, its change can be seen in other windows. It's connection gives the feeling of the present time, the one that can't be experienced, the one that we pass by without seeing it. And by showing it, we don't show it, we show the fact that nobody seems to realize or experience this very specific moment, everybody is going somewhere else, or thinking of something else. We added to this image the record of many interviews of people, inside the subway, who were asked those three questions: what are you thinking right now? what do you think of the subway? what do you think of people in the subway? The different answers we got give a overview of what people think in and of the subway. It relates to the video, which give a non personal point of view about the subway atmosphere, by adding to it what's missing: people thoughts, those we can't see even if we can guess what they are sometimes. So, by filming those intense stream that create life in the subway, with a realistic point of view, we show them as an example of phenomenology as well as we show how impressive they are if seen with a both omniscient and subjective points of view.
