Short Kendall-MIT Station MBTA Icosacomposite

This morning I got up early so I could catch rush hour at the next station south on the Red Line. It was cold and windy so I drove to Davis Sq to catch the subway, only to find that you can’t feed the meters until 8, which means I would probably come back to

Alewife Station MBTA Icosacomposite

And here’s the Alewife footage I shot Thursday along with the Harvard stuff. This station is one of the terminal stations for the Red Line, so both sets of tracks go the same direction. However, the Red Line splits after the JFK station, one side going to Braintree and the other going to Ashmont, so

Two Harvard Red Line MBTA Icosacomposites

Another Red Line station done–actually, two, but I haven’t processed the Alewife video yet. I started with a panoramic view of the ramp in Harvard station, but decided I wanted something different. I still got enough footage to produce a 30-sec composite, though: I wandered around to see if I could find something weird about

Porter Station Icosacomposite

A new T composite video, this time of the Porter Square Station. Porter does not have a place where both inbound and outbound lines are visible. But I’m more interested in the people, anyway, so I positioned myself so I could catch the inbound track and the line going to the long escalators. Bonus: banjo

MBTA Red Line Davis Station Icosacomposite

After doing the MWRA turbine/Orange Line tracks icosacomposite, it occurred to me that I should probably do one of the subway itself, without a wind turbine. So yesterday between 11:44a and 12:34p I recorded five 10-minute videos and turned them into a twenty-layer composite two and a half minutes long. Since the sound of the

MWRA Icosacomposite with MBTA Trains

Here’s another layered video of the new megawatt turbine at the MWRA. I couldn’t find a good place to park that also had a dynamic view of the turbine, but this particular view is interesting because it overlooks the MBTA Orange Line tracks going across the river in Everett. Several cars make their ghostly appearance
