6,300 NYC cabs will have their Taxi TV replaced with video art from the Tehran-born, NYC artist Amir Baradaran – the fellow who I humorlessly jeered for proposing to Marina Abramović at the MoMA (Sorry).

Instead of news-lite and steak house ads, 1.5 million passengers will watch 40-sec vid-vignettes of cab drivers glancing in rear view mirrors. The Transient installation will run between September 9th and 15th.
