Animation and projection

Since the three windows of the gallery at the Jamaica Center don’t expose the view of inside the gallery, I would like to bring a connection between the inside white cube and the busiest street of Jamaica Avenue by projecting a moving image of silhouettes of people who look at art during the gallery opening. Hundreds of hand-drawn images, outlined figures with black tone graphite, will be  created and projected on three windows using short throw projectors.
