How New Yorkers Feel About Art
By Maria Popova
Last year, the wonderful Fifty People One Question project, a finalist in the first annual Vimeo Awards for creativity and innovation in online video, was among our most loved articles all year, and for good reason — a beautifully simple premise, even more beautifully executed, peeling away at the most authentic of human sentiments about life. Now, a new microdocumentary by filmmakers Christian Svanes Kolding and Ewan Adams takes a similar approach to a much more niche topic: Art. The descriptively titled How Do You Feel (About Art)? asks New Yorkers for a three-word answer to the seemingly simple question, only to reveal the rich complexity of art’s impact on the human psyche.
Christian is also the talent behind The Things We Keep, the lovely short film we raved about over a year ago.
