A typical subway commute can be nightmarish, but when presented as a short film it becomes a thing of beauty.
In "Stations: A Quick Scan Through NYC," viewers can behold the chaos taking place within the bowels of all five boroughs in under two minutes.
Filmmaking group Snowday shot the film over the course of ten days in 120 stations scattered around the city, the group told Fastco Design.
For the filmmakers, the project offered an opportunity to explore their fascination with the subway system.
"There are so many layers of information to be absorbed within the context of each individual station," director Roddy Hyduk told Fastco Design.
"Imagining what's happening simultaneously across the entire system sparked my initial curiosity. This required staying a while in places where millions only ever consider passing through as quickly as possible," he said.
