Subway Stories -- an interactive storytelling installation first presented at New York University. The experience begins with a projection of an animated subway car. The train is filled with passengers—illustrations of real-life commuters drawn on subway rides across New York City. A physical "conductor's box" gives users control of where the projection is focused. One handle controls the train's speed, and the other handle controls the camera zoom. The audience hears the thoughts and sounds of the passenger in focus. Zooming into specific characters triggers their "stories"—audio narrations recorded to capture the inner lives of each passenger.
