Video of the Day: A Series of Walks


Our friends at Cool Hunting turned us on to a cool thesis project from recent NYU grad Nahanaeli Schelling that’s called “A Series of Walks”; it was inspired by the car-mounted cameras of Google Street View. The twist? Schelling placed 10 cameras on her own body and walked the streets of New York like a robot, hyper-documenting everything that she saw. “We ‘surf’ the internet rather then surf the waves,” she explains in her statement. “And if we ever get that chance to ride the ocean, we perceive the experience through the lenses of what we have already seen on YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr and other sites.” Now viewers can experience Schelling’s walks secondhand, thanks to a rectangular box and 6 projectors.
