Out the Window by Freewaves
Freewaves commissioned and presented 60 two minute artists’ videos and 75 youth-made videos exploring specific locales throughout Los Angeles County. The videos were presented on 4,400 screens on 2,200 L.A. Metro buses with approximately 1,200,000 boardings per day. Each artist’s work was shown 16 times over the 16 daily hours of Metro Bus operation. In addition to the Metro bus screenings, videos were also presented on www.out-the-window.org, cross-referenced by locale, keywords and artist. Freewaves also presented screenings at Inner City Arts, Occidental College, KAOS Café and Self-Help Graphics. Freewaves coordinated a free panel discussion about the cultural effects of technology as part of the L.A. Public Library’s Aloud series.
