What I Saw in the Theater of the Street: a 2 channel video installation
This work is inspired by the twin traditions of street photography and the urban literary sketch.   Small details are explored and compared; the microscopic becomes the sublime as the two screens enter into a dialogue with each other. A bubble bursts in Central Park, an abstract reflection of a tree in a canal in Paris shimmers, an Occupy Wall Street demonstrator gesticulates, a roll of hand processed black and white 16 mm film traces an afternoon walk. Shown at Cinema Reset, New Orleans Film Festival 2013.

Mark Street has shown work in the New York Museum of Modern Art Cineprobe series (1991, 1994), at Anthology Film Archives (1993, 2006, 2009, 2012), Millennium (1990,1996), and the San Francisco Cinematheque (1986, 1992, 2009). His work has appeared at the Tribeca (5 times), Sundance,  Rotterdam, New York,  London, San Francisco, New York Underground, Sarajevo, Viennale, Ourense (Spain), Mill Valley, South by Southwest, and other film festivals.

His work ranges from the abstract (Winterwheat, 1989; Echo Anthem 1992; Fulton Fish Market, 2004, Trailer Trash, 2008) to improvised narrative feature films (At Home and Asea, 2000; Rockaway 2005, Hasta Nunca 2012),
