Camminando | NYC, Lower East Side, Video Graffiti

A project very close to my heart has just started: the screening of "Frames of Sky from Earth" in the White Rabbit Lounge, in the LES.
I feel very strongly about bringing video art outside the white box of the gallery or the collector's living room. Any place where people gather gives the opportunity for screening, allowing the occasional passerby to engage in an art experience in a space with functions different from art perceptions.
Ideally the place for video art should be building facades. Large in scale and available to everybody, similar to graffiti art, but with ephemeral quality, without a permanent sign on the building. I called it "video graffiti".

To be continued...
