This video builds an atmosphere of New York City “the hyper visualized city”. Set of millions of movies seen around the World and almost 47 millions of tourists a year, anxious to take pictures of it. A constant allegory to popular culture and a space build through globalized imaginaries. The video explores the iconic surface of the city in a constant confrontation with its complex deeper layers. A sequence that contains images and audios taken from movies; footage shot on the touristic sites and images from popular culture that mingle with the touristic-artistic experience.
