As if I was not already slightly obsessed with the work of British born artist James Nares…he captivates me again. This time he ventures down an artistic road where he opts to trade in his paint brush for a video camera. The result: “Street”, a mesmerizing video capturing the streets of New York City with a high-speed camera in slow-motion from the vantage point of a moving car. Then add on the artistic eye of Nares and there you go MET worthy material. On display through May 27th.

If you find yourself in London in the next few months make sure to pencil in a visit to the British Museum’s exhibition of “Life and death in Pompeii and Herculaneum”. Shown through the perspective of a first century ancient Roman, the exhibit takes you through the typical home in Pompeii and Herculaneum. Think life under the Roman Empire circa 79 AD. If the video isn’t intriguing enough, wait until you see the fascinating objects perfectly preserved in ashes of Mount Vesuvius.
