NYC Public Art: Sleepwalkers

A new public art project called Sleepwalkers by Doug Aitken was unveiled in NYC last week. It is presented by Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Creative Time, a public art organization.

Aitken produced 5 parallel short films that each feature a single actor waking up and starting their day. They begin “walking in their sleep,” but are energized by the excitement that is New York City. Actors in the films include Donald Sutherland, Tilda Swinton and Cat Power. Follow the link above for a trailer and more information about the project.

Each evening through February 12, these films are projected on the sides of buildings surrounding the MoMA outdoor sculture garden. It runs through February 12.
