I was going through some old files and found a link to an art/film project Mark was a part of last year. It was actually on the front page of the New York Times Theater section which was really cool.
"Last year Rochelle Steiner, the director of the Public Art Fund, which commissions and presents exhibitions in public spaces in New York, encouraged Ms. Friedman to do something for the fund."
Friedman does art films and she decided to film people all over the city preforming in public spaces. You can read about it here:
The photograph at the top is my husband Mark! As well as the first person in the soldier's uniform to sing on the street in the video. If you don't see the video just click on the spot where it should be and it will come up. Isn't he cute?
My favorite part of the article and the experiment is the fact that there are so many crazy things going on here on the streets that no one even bats an eye! And in a way that makes me sad, I mean do we as a society have so much going on that we don't even see the other people around us living out their lives? Do we pass by things without seeing their beauty because we have to much to do? Has it become unacceptable to reach out to the people around us and share a strange moment on the street? I wonder a lot about that here in this city. It's so easy to feel alone here while at the same time be surrounded by millions of people...
