Navigate every single street in Manhattan through video
A few years before Google Street View launched, I had the crazy notion to take a video of every single street in Manhattan and build an application where you could navigate the entire city through video with the complete control to turn at every intersection. A labor of love for 5 years, it was accepted into Ars Electronica 2006 in Linz, Austria.

Planning material and and equipment.
One year alone was spent on mapping and planning a route that would take me through every single street in Manhattan. The entire city was then recorded in a 10 day shoot with a custom dashboard mount. The ensuing years were spent in my spare time editing the video, constructing the database and building the app.
The final product serves as more of an interactive art piece, an artifact of the city in a singular point in time.
