Brooklyn-based digital media artist Ed Purver teamed up with local musician and composer Tim DuRoche to create a large-scale work of public art: The Hidden Life of Bridges will employ several live microphones placed under and above the main deck of the Hawthorne Bridge, as well as giant video projections on the south side of the Morrison Bridge’s two piers. DuRoche and Purver built a rich narrative through interviews with bridge employees, speaking with engineers, mechanics, safety inspectors, bridge operators, and more. Standing on the Hawthorne, viewers will be treated to a 15-minute looping walk-in movie; passersby can also watch from the waterfront and listen via cell phone. VIRGINIA THAYER
