The Brooklyn Bridge and Woolworth Building are both wonderful examples of American Gothic architecture in NYC. They represent a period in which traditional masonry techniques and aesthetics met the technological revolutions of the industrial age. The Bridge acts as a gnomon, channeling rays of light onto the East River as the Woolworth building's tower lights up with the sunset as if it were the stained glass of a Gothic cathedral, or an aperture in a Mayan temple. The vibrations caused by the subway's clack and rumble over the Manhattan bridge affect the video in a coordinated way; this was not accomplished using software, but rather by merely placing the camera to take advantage of it. The serenity of this American Gothic sunset is fused with the needs of a population likewise in transit.
