This piece is comprised of over 100 images of Grand Central Terminal in New York City, taken by nearly 100 individual photographers under a Creative Commons license. These images are arranged sequentially to form a single, archetypal gesture that describes the space through a range of vantage points. The resulting video is an assemblage of different perspectives and moments in time. It elevates the meaning of gesture from a singular or disparate occurrence to a multiplicity, a link between individual agents. It raises questions of a universal perception of space across cultures, as well as the collective meaning of place, in particular a place of pivotal, even “global” significance.
