coming & going: PARIS (Metro)

Peter d'Agostino 1977 / 2008

Video-photo-text installation Edition: 5+2 AP

Filmed from video surveillance monitors, this video follows passengers'
underground travel through various stops, transfers, and connections in the Paris Metro.
Aspects of ambiguity and confusion experienced in the metro are juxtaposed with
a linguistic parallel to the visual image - the etymology of the word "metro."
