New York’s CCTV Live Feeds Make Kaleidoscopic Video Art

March 14, 2014 | Marina Galperina

From the artist/writer who founded the “New Aesthetic,” James Bridle’s project #Rorschcam taps into the CCTV cameras mounted all around the city.

You can now watch the Department of Transportation’s live feeds, from the construction on 9th Avenue and 49th Street to the midday traffic droll of Columbus Circle at Central Park, from as close to a block from our office to as far the Rockaways Blvd at Division — all in four mesmerizing mirrored pattern view.

The project is part of Bridle’s series that also includes kaleidoscopic views of Google maps  and Google Street View, developed during his residency Eyebeam.
