collaborative cell phone movie events in NYC
Collective Sight is two collaborative cell phone movie-making events, taking
place April 13th and 20th in New York City. Participants are
asked to shoot video with their cell phones starting at the same time
at the same place. This project takes two similar structures (in historic places) as a
starting point for exploring public space in New York City.
