Jem Cohen: NYC Weights and Measures

Encore: October 31, 2011

In “NYC Weights and Measures” (2006), Jem Cohen chronicles a city that exudes noise and bustle, balanced with beauty and tranquility. A compendium of street footage, the video shows a ticker-tape parade, street musicians, the subways. Cohen writes, “Sometimes I just wander around with my camera. I like to see what comes around the corner, and sometimes I just like the corner itself.”
