Description

On Broadway is an interactive application and a public installation commissioned by the New York Public Library for its exhibition Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing Photography (December 2014-January 2016).

The interactive installation represents life in the 21st century city through a compilation of images and data collected along the 13 miles of Broadway that span Manhattan. The result is a new type of city view, created from the activities of hundreds of thousands of people.
