Zone out to this for an hour

Voyeur_l

Voyeur_lDo you like staring blankly at your computer screen with only a vague impression of what’s going on or why you’re doing it — but that’s okay? So do I. You might like HBO Voyeur, a “multimedia experience that gives you a peek into what happens behind the countless windows we pass everyday.” Or in this case, 40 windows plus stairwells of an apartment building at Broome and Ludlow in NYC. (There’s also a funeral home on 72nd, “the meditator” on Prince, and more.) The site’s a bit confusing and difficult to load at times — if you want to figure out what exactly’s going on with Voyeur production-wise, it’s best to watch the videos off HBO’s homepage for the project. Somehow the little vignettes are all connected; we’re supposed to speculate as to how. Will anyone care? Hard to say. I just like watching the animated dollhouse and grooving to the cool tunes.

Then again, if that’s all I’m going for, I should just watch Massive Attack’s video for “Protection” on a loop, since it’s kind of the same thing.
