Between 8:30 am and 9:30 am, from 2007 to 2016, at the southern corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue in New York City. Danish photographer, Peter Funch, placed these rigid confines upon his 9 year photographic project, 42nd and Vanderbilt. The result is a process of human mapping; equal parts intuitive and scientific, mannerisms normally passed over on first read, become meditations on time, mortality, public and private space, the economy, and our inner selves. Funch employs a method that novelist and visual artist Douglas Coupland aptly describes in the book's afterword as "a kinder, gentler kind of surveillance." Item #17438
