This Artist is Live-Streaming His Life Inside a Vacant Allen Street Store [VIDEO]
It’s voyeurism upped a notch.
Brooklyn-based street artist RAE just moved into an Allen Street storefront and wants you to observe his “mundane” lifestyle. The pseudo-anonymous creative will be living in the storefront of 130 Allen for the next four weeks, and hopes to pique interest with passersby. But the stunt – dubbed “The RAE Show” – is also live-streamed via YouTube. There are feeds from four separate surveillance cameras.
The store itself is essentially a bedroom setup, complete with bed, desk, television, computer, and plenty of lights. Not to mention RAE artwork, too. You’ll see a glimpse of a day in the life of RAE. (What about bathroom breaks?)
“I’m looking to create a body of work with inspiration from the people passing by and being confined,” the artist told us in a message. “I’m hoping to take people out of their normal routine and get a voyeuristic view into my mundane existence and imagined world.”
So, yeah, his life is now on view for the world to see (and those who care). It runs through Thanksgiving.
