Internet project commissioned by Turbulence with a grant from the Jerome Foundation and supported in part by a grant from The City University of New York PSC-CUNY Research Award Program RealAudio narration: Bill Rice; Second voice: Annie Shaver-Crandell; Sound mixing: John Neilson; Photography assistant: Reyna DiCiurcio Annette Weintraub's Sampling Broadway is a virtual tour of five downtown locations along Manhattan's famous thoroughfare. The site equates the city with media space by layering panoramic images of the five locations with movies and animations interspersed with text, voice-over narration, and sounds of the street. Weintraub is interested in the simultaneous experience of reading, seeing, and hearing as a metaphor for the dynamics of urban life. Rather than present a frozen, literal view, as is typical of panoramic photography, Weintraub evokes the density and complexity of city space.
