The sun sets. A small audience gathers on the sidewalk. Other New Yorkers rush past, some without noticing the large projection just above their line of sight. Others stop for a couple minutes to take in the spectacle. A video, over two stories tall, glows on a nearby wall.

NYC / Video Art

As people. we constantly project our understanding of the world outward. Individual understandings intermix to create a greater shared reality (as we come together to form the cities we live in). Still, human knowledge cannot be separated from the human experience. Still, different realities exist within the scope of our cumulative understanding. STRAIGHT THROUGH THE WALL asked various artists what they want to say about the experience of being human. Tonight we present their views, intermixed, connected yet separate.

What is STTW?

We are STRAIGHT THROUGH THE WALL, a guerrilla Arts collective that projects video art onto walls throughout NYC. We scour the city for blank building facades, willing canvases waiting above busy avenues or hovering over quiet gardens and empty lots. With every screening, we incorporate art into the cityscape, merging it with New York’s varied architecture, bringing it out of the rigid structures of galleries & exhibitions, and delivering it directly to the masses.
