Project by Alon Chitayat & Jeff Ong
An interactive storytelling installation exploring the inner-lives of subway commuters in NYC.
What of the judgments we make about those around us in places such as a subway car? The passing encounters, the conversations, the thoughts of our temporary neighbors?
Subway Stories is based on my daily sketches on the subway, a project which started back in 2005 and still growing.
I hand-illustrated the graphics and recorded the stories. My talented collaborator Jeff coded the project which runs on a web browser (THREE.js + Web Audio).
