Take A Stop-Motion Trip Back to New York City In 1983

This video by Rick Liss, with music by Laurie Anderson, takes us on a tour through five minutes of frantic, stop-motion vintage New York City, when times were perhaps easier, and many of us were almost/ just born. Maybe some of us will spot our would-be parents as this video rolls past landmarks such as the World Trade Center, NYC Metro and Central Park. Perhaps are parents were alcoholic mimes, which are also featured in this video, as a sort of peaceful and quiet interlude to the rush of the streets and Sixth Avenue graffiti. In any case, try not to have a seizure while watching this video, as the 5 minutes of stop-motion/ weird music seems, well, seizure inducing. TC mark
