A trip through time

Now that I have my MIDI keyboard working with Isadora, I had a good idea for an installation based on the passage of time viewed from an old train. I plan on visiting the Transit Museum in Brooklyn to take a, possibly panoramic, picture of the inside of an old train with the a good view of the windows from inside. Then, using the piano keys, I’d generate different video’s of interesting landscapes and such happening outside the window. Depending on what key you press, a different video will play. With the knobs on the keyboard, I plan on altering sound or certain parts of the videos, live. Using found footage on youtube of old cable car rides through Brooklyn and abandoned subway stations throughout the tri-state area, I’ll make an interactive subway ride traveling through time.
