Coffee Table in the City

As an art experiment, Julie
put a coffee table in a bus stop in Koreatown, Los Angeles, and
filmed the results from a distance:

The table—set with a newspaper and a vase of flowers—becomes
a hub of interaction for the corner. People not only flock to the table,
they end up talking to each other about it. Kim says she was surprised
to see so many serendipitous moments in what amounted to only eight minutes
of video. "The number and variety of people milling about—workers,
kids, the elderly, of every ethnic group—surprised me," she
says. "I thought I’d have to shoot for at least an hour to capture
anything worthwhile."
