Ian Dicke’s “Grand Stage” investigates a microcosm of endless social exchange through digital video loops of passengers traversing the GCT main concourse, filmed by Elisa Ferrari. To further enhance this feeling of timelessness, the musical material and form of “Grand Stage” are extracted from Harry Von Tilzer’s “Last Night Was the End of the World,” which spent 22 weeks at the top of the charts in 1913, the year Grand Central Terminal was opened to the general public. See Ian Dicke’s artwork in the ON TIME/Grand Central at 100 exhibition at the New York Transit Museum Gallery in Grand Central Terminal, on view until July 7th, 2013.
