CITY ONE MINUTES NEW ORLEANS

City One Minutes is about capturing 24 hours of a city in a video portrait of 24 minutes.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION AND PROPOSALS:
City One Minutes is a worldwide art project for which artists are invited to make a personal 60-second video portrait of cities all over the world. The project is being initiated by one of the most renowned Dutch Art Academies, the SANDBERG Institute. A selection of the videos will tour worldwide, initially at the Shanghai World Expo in April 2010, followed by a travelling exhibition to Cape Town, Venice Biennial, Architecture Biennial Rotterdam and many many more. Buildings, squares, a river, cars, people, eating, loneliness, money, order and chaos. A city in the morning is different from that at night. Cities change every hour. Making a portrait of a city we are looking for its characteristics. Images from which one recognizes the city, combined with the personal view of the maker. One artist will make a one minute video between 9.00 and 10.00 pm. Another artist between 10.00 and 11.00 pm and so on and forth. Together these 24 videos will form a collective artwork of 24 minutes.
