MyBlockNYC Maps the City Through Video

By - Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

MyBlockNYC.com is an interactive website that maps the city through video, pinpointing their locations on a map of New York. The site is aimed at creating an intimate, evolving, and complete portrait of NYC. After our post yesterday about Katsu getting up on Google satellite view, MyBlockNYC hit us up with their link to a video by Nick Poe, Troy Lumpkin, and Alek Kalman that has footage of the large tag in the making. If haven’t seen this video yet, “The Power of Katsu“, it’s worth a watch. And check out MyBlockNYC.com for more videos shot around the city that never sleeps. “The Powers of Katsu is a film about scale and painting. It is based on Charles and Ray Eames’ 1968 classic, The Powers of Ten, which explores the relative size of the universe (and which is itself based on Cosmic View, a 1957 book by Kees Boeke). The Powers of Katsu stars none other than infamous public art legend Katsu.” {image-1}
