use a bicycle


Bicycling 51st street and 8th Avenue New York 2001

short video extract..


This is my first bicycle video based on my daily experience in moving on the surface with my then girl friend Haruko. The camera was installed on the 27th flloor of a building at the corner of 8th Avenue and 51st street which allowed to film from nearly a bird perspective. Indeed, I was flying high at the moment and disregared traffic rules and all kind of common sense (not only in street behavior.) It appeared as endless circling against all kind of forces including fears, cars and long shadows.
