PARIS (Metro)

1977-78, 5:22 min, color, sound

In PARIS (Metro), d'Agostino uses the Metro's closed-circuit surveillance cameras to record the movement of passengers in and out of the subway. The monitored images allude to a found text on the confusing etymological origins of "metro" and "poly" and their metaphoric connection to the subway as a vehicle of communication, while simulating the disassociation experienced by passengers in the system.
