An immersive 24-hour web documentary about a bodega in Queens, NY.<br />
Bodega is a 24-hour web documentary that captures the everyday interactions and transactions of a small neighborhood business. As viewers settle into the real-time audio soundscape of the store, 3D models of purchased items rotate on screen. Bodega is a meditation on commerce, labor, and the relationships between locals in a changing neighborhood.
For the Winter Show, we’d like to present Bodega as a multimedia installation. The project will be projected on the wall, with headphones available for individual viewers. A table will display an array of the goods that were purchased during filming and scanned into the project.
