Under the Morrison Bridge from Ed Purver on Vimeo.

This is just a one-minute, twenty second tease of one of the more epic projects at PICA‘s TBA:11 Festival. The Hidden Life of Bridges turns the Hawthorne and Morrison bridges into a giant art installation for three nights of the festival. Brooklyn-based video artist Ed Purver and Portland sound artist Tim DuRoche are collaborating on a project that incorporates live sound generated from mics on  the Hawthorne bridge, recorded interviews with the workers who maintain and run the bridges, and video of the inner workings of the bridges. As you’ll see in the video, it promises to be as poetic and surprisingly beautiful as well as spectacular.
