It’s getting a tad difficult to enjoy one of the abandoned-elevated-train-track-turned-park, that with the cold and all. As our strolls turn into shuddering sprints, the High Line is preparing to project Guido van der Werve’s Nummer negen—The Day I Didn’t Turn With the World at its strip on West 14th Street, the outdoor Channel 14 Gallery.
It’s all very appropriate: The 9-minute film is a sped up version of a day of the life of an artist just hanging out in the center of the Arctic Circle, standing in one spot and methodically shuffling himself to turn every so slowly against the Earth’s rotation. As the World moves, he stays “in place.” Like a boss.
See it starting Nov. 1, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Check out the behind the scenes photos from the project. Brrrrr.
