One year crossing Manhattan Bridge
I’ve created a Instagram account called @bridge_today and took photos from the same spot every single time I crossed the bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan, and vice versa, from May 2016 to May 2017. Below is the result and you can find more details here.
They look the same
I have a twin brother called Guto. He’s 56 seconds younger than me. You may think that’s not a big difference, but there are differences and people love to find what they are.
It can get really annoying, but we understand it is fun for people. So, we created our Twin Pics and placed it all over the cities we’ve lived in. Now people can take their time as stare at us without those awkward comments about who has the longer nose or the bigger cheeks.
Gisele (my wife) and myself always believed that the greatest think about NYC is its randomness, and to let the NYC guide you, not the opposite. So we created a guide made by randomness. We pasted stickers with a link, on the website people can recommend their #1 favorite place in NYC. This project is still running and we have collected more than 100 answers. Our goal is to organize the guide and share in a random future moment.
Bienal B | Projeto Parande
I’ve created an art exhibition with my Mom and artist, Bina Monteiro, and my twin brother. With the purpose of connecting the digital and analog worlds, we created a first room featured Bina’s painting through an animation. The second room showcased the finished piece. It was a fun experiment, part of Bienal B, a parallel exhibition with the Mercosul Biennal.
