Video Still #1 from (DIS) CONNECTED .MANHATTAN

(DIS) CONNECTED is a non-commercial video installation project designed for display in ground level windows facing the sidewalk in busy pedestrian areas.

(DIS) CONNECTED videos contain hundreds of clips (and still images) of people in public focused not on their surroundings or on the people with them, but on their phones or devices instead.

The clips are organized by topic and are grouped into chapters with titles such as "{IN} ADEQUATE ETIQUETTE," "{SELF} CHECKOUT," and "{CONTACT} HIGH." 

Each video is approximately 60 minutes long and will be set to loop when on display in a window. The first three planned for the series are: Manhattan, Subway, and Brooklyn. Projected completion for the first video - Manhattan Aboveground - is June 2018. 

(DIS) CONNECTED's primary goal is to show people what we look like. 

(DIS) CONNECTED will not be made available by streaming over the internet, the cloud, social media, or any platform accessible by phone, computer, or handheld device.
