A film to be viewed 100 years from now
Street, a new video by artist James Nares, will have its New York premiere as the centerpiece of an exhibition by the same name at The Metropolitan
Museum of Art from March 5 through May 27, 2013. A recent acquisition of the Museum, the mesmerizing 61-minute high-definition video—which was
shot on the streets of Manhattan over the course of a week in September 2011—will be shown continuously on a large screen in the central gallery
of the Museum’s Drawings, Prints, and Photographs Galleries. The exhibition Street will also include 60 works of art—selected by the artist from the
Met’s encyclopedic collections—that situate his video in relation to earlier works that capture the spirit of the street.

To make Street, Nares shot 16 hours of footage with a high-speed camera that is normally used from a stationary position to capture fleeting subjects such as hummingbirds and speeding bullets at a rate of between 500 and 1000 frames per second. Nares reversed this process by positioning the camera to film out the back and sides of a moving SUV. He recorded his footage in six-second snippets, the maximum length of time that the camera can record at such a high
resolution. He then greatly slowed his source material, and edited down the results to 61 minutes of steady, continuous motion—which, if shown
in real time, would last only three minutes. Nares’ friend, guitarist and Sonic Youth co-founder Thurston Moore, composed and performed the video’s
musical score on a 12-string acoustic guitar.

The street and street life have served as inspiration for painters and poets, filmmakers, and photographers since the birth of modernity. Nares’ inspiration for the film came from viewing actualité films by the turn-of-the-century pioneers of cinema Auguste and Louis Lumière and Thomas Edison—who themselves used the moving image technology that they invented to magically capture the street life of their own time. In the early stages of the development of Street, the artist considered
subtitling the piece "A film to be viewed 100 years from now”; this desire to record the present, as if from a great distance in the future,
resonates with earlier chroniclers of the street, such as Walker Evans. Nares’ inventive use of the most modern technology available at the
time of production resulted in a distinctive visual look that harkens back to the simulated three-dimensional effects of 19th-century stereographs,
while also being utterly up-to-date in its evocation of increasingly isolated, virtual, and image-suffused existence in the 21st century.
