*City Walk*. 1999. USA. Directed by Bill Morrison. Courtesy of Bill Morrison

Morrison's video work has explored everything from his cat Gene's ruminative wanderings to the last days of Al Capone inside the Eastern State Penitentiary. For Outerborough—commissioned by MoMA on the occasion of the 2004 reopening of the newly expanded Museum—Morrisson applied a mathematical formula to his editing, blurring the path of an 1899 train as it crosses the Brooklyn Bridge.
