Big Men in the Metro

So here's a slideshow I did for a class last semester.

The pictures I took are from the LA Metro subway's Union Station stop, which had these monumental wrestling posters that became gradually defaced. They were like these looming, hypermasculine giants surveying the commuters.

The audio mix is an arrangement of clips I recorded inside the trains running up and down the entire length of the Red Line. It's arranged in a trains/places/people structure, and intentionally lo-fi. Headphones are a good idea.

The whole piece was done with my crappy Motorola Razr mobile phone, then edited on my crappy old iMac using Garage Band and iPhoto, all out-of-date versions. Grad students can't afford to be state-of-the-art!
