Underground Movie Ads

has anyone seen this in other cities?

Yes, in the Montreal Metro (subway, underground)
during "Expo '67" (a moving image renaissance). A
"public art" one is planned for Toronto's Museum
subway station.
The windows of the train act as a MOVING viewer
"gate", passing the STATIONARY, horizontal strip of
images on the tunnel wall. The frame lines are
probably as wide as the frames/windows, and best in
mid-tunnel, at top speed.
I've always wanted to see this done with miniature
train technology, and maybe with real film! A moving
projector and stationary film!

I noticed you said it "create(s) the illusion of a
video projection". Interesting.

Btw, I didn't know how to view Freya's "fish" link, so
I'm trying to figure out what it was by people's
comments. Bowls of fish attached to walls of trains?
John.
