W38StNYC, a photo and video installation that simulates a lunchtime saunter down this block in the Fashion District, captures the atmosphere of the now-vanishing garment-producing neighborhood. Artists Diana Leidel and Cat Del Buono have teamed up to present ribbons of intimately-scaled digital images and videos that tell the story of Manhattanâ€™s West 38th Street, from Seventh to Eighth Avenue, as experienced in the blink of an eye in a pedestrianâ€™s daily routine. This block, at once gritty, glitzy and go-getting, populated by the humble, the striving and the super-successful fashion denizens, is at the heart of the relentlessly-paced fashion industry that has made New York a household word in style.Â The artists recorded what they observed as they walked down the blockâ€”at the busy late lunchtime periodâ€“â€“using the minimal, least invasive technology of an iPhone and Flip Camera. They did no post-shoot manipulation, so that there was no aesthetic â€œinterventionâ€ in the final product. Each of the images and videos reflects a single moment that passed quickly, and documents the remorseless activity of the street that defines the Fashion District. Â W38StNYCÂ will be on display in Miami fromÂ February 21 to March 9.
