“Masstransiscope” (produced) by Bill Brand

masstransiscope

Almost everyday I take either the B or the Q train into Manhattan and I get a glimpse of the now restored Bill Brand “Masstransiscope”.  It’s a mural behind a series of panels that as the train passes by appears to move – similar to the way a zoetrope works.  Passengers can get a look at it by being on the right side of the train after the Dekalb stop before the train goes over the bridge.

Click here to see a video of it in action.

I lived in Brooklyn about the time this first went up. And I remember looking for it every day when I went in to work. It is a very nice bit of art in the darkness of the subway.

im glad you found a video of it, i remember writing about it and feeling like words just weren’t enough
